Forgiveness

by Jonbeyond

HOW can I ever FORGET?
My LIFE was forever CHANGED
I came to KNOW great SUFFERING
My TOMORROWS  are always YESTERDAY

And it is.... ALL.... because of ....YOU!

How DIRE to be HELD in the GRASP of the INESCAPABLE?

What's the DIFFERENCE  between a FOOL and a SAINT?

They both BELIEVE to their own HURT

Those who DIE in TRUTH are RAISED AGAIN

I SEE with EYES from YESTERDAY
Something from the PAST, turns the EYES to look WITHIN
To look upon the ONCE WAS, time and time AGAIN

THAT which I was FORCED to RECKON with
Has left ME  forever CHANGED
What I ONCE  was
I can NEVER be again

The WALKING DEAD is my FATE

Who but an ENEMY would do this to ME?

A DAY of MISERY is soon FORGOTTEN
At the END of its DAY
But when it LASTS LONGER than a DAY it becomes....SUFFERING
YEARS make what is called... LONG SUFFERING
When....NO.... NUMBER.... is given to its.... END

Is HELL the GATEWAY to HEAVEN?

MUST the TRUTH always be SUFFERED for?

I can't LIVE until I have DIED?

How can LIFE come from DEATH?

This DEATH can't be the DEATH of the FLESH
Or I would BE no more

Does my SPIRIT have this POWER
To DIE and to be RAISED AGAIN?

Could this LONG SUFFERING be the state of the WALKING DEAD?
The SPIRIT lost to TODAY, trapped in the PAST
HELD in BONDAGE by WHAT was THEN

To LIVE the PAST is to WALK the DEAD

WHEN the SPIRIT LEAVES something it is said to be DEAD
So too....WHEN it ENTERS INTO  something it is said to LIVE

HOW can the TROUBLED SPIRIT come to KNOW REST?

WHEN does a MEMORY ....HURT....NO MORE

WHAT.... MAKES.... me FEEL the WAY  I do?
Is it these THOUGHTS  that I REHEARSE over and over IN my MIND?
If THEY were NO MORE....
Would I BE.... ANOTHER ME?

I choose DEATH to these THOUGHTS

I give THEM up

I FORGIVE

For the SAKE of LIFE

sincerely,
I CAN LOVE AGAIN
