Forgiveness

I forgive you

For how you have illuminated

All the soul spots I have not healed.

 

I forgive you

For the faces of your children

That echo my face when I was young.

 

I forgive you

For forgetting that appearances are worth less

Than the heartbeat of a peaceful home.

Ah, how I craved that peace when I was young!

 

I forgive you your anger

That spills over me like bright acid

Closing my mouth down around the truth

I was just about to speak.

 

I forgive you.

I am still trying to forgive myself

For judging how

You walk your path.

For each wave of invalidation you cast

I have volleyed invalidation back.

Please forgive me.
