Forgiven, Not Forgotten

To forgive is to forget.
Is it really?

I have been pondering about this line of thought for the past few days now and I have come to a, well, sort of conclusion that it does not have to traverse a 2-way street just as what others have been persisting. I would say that it is entirely possible to forgive someone for their trespasses against us without actually forgiving them. Afterall, forgiveness is a decision of the will; a renouncing of our anger and resentment.

While forgetting, can we really forget people, things, events or situations? Am not sure but from what I can recall of some medical readings, our minds do not forget. We just think that we have forgotten but the truth s, the information is still there inside our minds. But for some reasons, we just cannot access it. Maybe it is due to the distractions going on around us but the bottom line is, we cannot force the mind to forget. We can, perhaps, suppress the memories we do not want to remember its associated feelings with. And it is just that ... suppressing ... simply pushing the memory out of reach, but not totally constraining it. Unless of course you contracted some form of amnesia and your memories start to fail you. But other than that, we cannot will our minds to forget. We can only will ourselves to forgive.

What is your love?

Some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed

Some say love it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love it is a hunger
An endless aching need

I say love it is a flower
and you its only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learn to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance

It's one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that no love to live

When the nights has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
Then you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong.
