Forgive From The Heart 2

Burdens we carry
Why must it be so?
I cry and weep
For my lost innocent soul
Hatred, was replaced
By human deed of lust
It is something
I wish not to remember
Nevertheless, I would rather forget
However, it keeps haunting my dreams
It is just there in the back of my mind
Just out of reach
We, cannot be held
Accountable for their sin
We can at least learn
From mens stupidity in sin
Victims will laugh
At this humane attempt
To try and forgive these men with contempt
I know what will happen
If you let it gnaw at your soul
It will bury your heart
It will bury your soul
The hardest thing as a victim I ever did
Was to forgive the man that battered my soul
To heal the pain
The anger within
Forgive from the heart
That is all I ever ask
Forgive him his sin

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
