We know virtue of travelling light, let's practice that in life too
Lesser the baggage we carry with us better is our journey
Oftentimes we get hurt badly by those we loved and cared for
Pains inflicted by our nears and dears is never easy to forget
How bruised and let down we all feel when that happens
Some of us may think of returning the favour at opportune time
If that's what you too think, it's time to stop, wait, and then act
Vengeance never a cure for soul, on contrary it turns all of us sadder
Why not do something that makes us happier, calmer and bigger
Such a simple word, forgiveness, never easy to practice
Forgiveness is the true catharsis we can all gift to ourselves
Who says forgiveness is a sign of weakness, it's the only act of Godliness
