My Revenge


I was hurt
deeply pained

so I wept through
every passing night

uncontrollable tears
well out from my heart

unconscious and conscious wail
my pain increase

now I want revenge
what is my revenge oh!

My weapon, my knife
my gun and my words

is to injure you with
my forgiveness

forgiving you, forgiveness
is my revenge to you...
