As I look into the world I think about all the things we store in our minds,
We store Love we store hate,
We tend to keep them there sometimes we keep them so long until it's just to late,

Sometimes we carry over things from a bad marriage,
Sometimes we carry over things from an unfair family event,
A lot of the things we carry over is not fair to the next person,

When we meet other people that are truly nice,
We tend not to want to give them a chance,
We worry about what happened last time,
but your dealing with someone else now,
you should have a different frame of mind,

God didn't make any of us just alike,
we are all somehow someway unique,
Just take some time and do a quick critique,

You will see the different attitudes,
some happy some sad,
Others you will see that he are she really aren't all that bad.

Your carry overs can keep you behind,
You will loose a lot of friends,
because you could not change within,

If you really forgive a person,
you will forget,
You want hold on to the pass,
Ask my father for forgiveness,
The carry over just want last.

You will need to understand,
That my Father controls every man,
He has the world in the palm of his hand,

No problem comes to big are small,
My Father has control of it all,
Leave your carry overs behind you,
They will only keep you down,
Pray and ask God to change that frown into a smile.

Try it for a while and remember the greatest commandment ,
Love...
when you love you want worry about others,
You will have no problem forgiving your sisters and brothers.
