    I forgive and let go, I live
    I fly away from my pain
    No longer having to feel this rain
    Which continuously runs down my face
    Floating through my thoughts in my mind
    Wondering will they be joyous at any time
    I forgive and let go, I live
    All the pain that someone caused me
    Is not a burden to my heart anymore and is released
    Taking away the agony of insecurity
    And depressing comments that are belittling
    I forgive and let go, I live
    I'm pushing all the negativity away
    Bringing an ounce of delight to my life each day
    No more low selfesteem to consume my life
    No more heartache, pain, and strife
    I forgive and let go, I live
    No longer holding a grudge
    Not worrying about what people say
    Who are they to judge?
    I am me
    And thats all I can be
    For those reasons
    I forgive and let go, I live

    There are those situations where if you hold onto anger, it will eat you alive. This is such a positive drop, and I liked the way it was posed.
