Forgiveness - Poem by lesley herrera
Hot fire in my veins boiled over the black pot
Dripping slowly down the walls drowning in hatred
Wanting to spit venom from my tongue and into your heart
A slow death, poisoning you from head to toe
The rollercoaster stopped
Realizing before it was too late,
A shadow, blending into the night.
Holding onto pain.
The heat engulfing your soul
Feel the pain you wake up with everyday
Pulling you deeper into the grave of loneliness...
Shocked, mortified. Not thinking strong enough to go
Dumb as an ox? No. Knowing!
Betrayal. Hurt. Anger. Compassion.
Feeling sorry for you. A sickness you did not ask for.
Generational curse that has engulfed your family.
Cheating, lying, disrespect.
Not seeing the ember in your eye.
Not our son. Not our daughter.
The day the door closed on our house of pain.
Their minds are scarred; deep burns flaw their innocents.
An angel from above carried us away to sunshine and blue skies
Sadness and guilt inflicted mind
You are now alone. Why feel sad?
You were a glass house, I was looking in.
All the windows shattered and embedded in my soul
Time heals all wounds.
You chose the road most have traveled.
The rock crumbled that held life together.
Why were you so deceiving being with another woman who does not respect herself?
Don’t you know you cannot turn a whore into a housewife?
Unfortunately, we all learn from our mistakes.
I have forgiven you. I’m sorry you still blame me for your faults.
No longer will I hold animosity in my heart.
One day you will realize everything happens for a reason.
