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,

Walking away,

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.
