forgiveness, a foreign concept
out of style with today's age
when it happened, i cried
narcissistic tears of naivety and betrayal
i have grown in spirit
and now i am mourning the hurt child you used to be
crying for the hatred that has consumed your humanity
but i refuse to follow in your footsteps
i was drunk on disillusionment and bitterness
now, abstaining from the bottle, i am able to see clearly
to follow in your footsteps would be to give you power
to hate you would be to wrong you
echoing words i stated numbly
long before i was ready
i finally forgive you
and myself.

hi - am new - but looking to get down to some serious work -and fun!

16 lines which talks of bitterness and forgiveness - tells the tale of love and aspirations and growth and self annealing psychology... after some wacky alcoholic binges -  wow!

Good to read.
