 Prophecy and Poetry


I use to think my forgiveness
Certain ones didn't deserve
By holding back his act of love
I was the one most hurt

To contain an anger
Resentment hurt or shame
It turns a sickness inward
Killing love with blame

I felt daggers in my heart
In my head and chest
I repeated hurtful images
I wouldn't let error rest
My whole body was taking ill
and...my joy ran dry
My face grew hard and meaner still
...my spirit it did die

Once I made the choice to love
To everyone forgive
I began my healing
I began to LIVE
