Want to forgive you

Want to forgive you for every wrong you have done to me but

I just cannot bring myself to do it

Every time I look at myself in the mirror

I see all the scars on my face

Created by your bare hands

You felt no remorse for the pain you caused me

You felt no shame for the humiliation you brought me

It brought you pleasure to see me hurt and bleeding

Want to forgive you for every wrong you have done to me but

I just cannot bring myself to do it

I remember very slap and punch so vividly it is hard to forget

Want to forgive you for every wrong you have done to me but

Want to forget every slap you gave me

Want to forget every punch you threw at me

But I just cannot bring myself to forgive

Want to forgive you for every wrong you have done to me

But I am not ready to let go of all the anger and hate

Rather burn in hell than forgive you

Want to forgive you for every wrong you have done to me but

I just cannot bring myself to do it.

This poem is heartbreaking. Do no feel you have to forgive an abuser. Forgiving someone is more for you than the abuser. If you can forgive your abuser someday, it will benefit you more than him. You will have let go of the anger and pain and feel a great sense of relief. But, forgiveness cannot come before its time. I wish you the best in your healing time.

Such depth of feeling and emotions comes through your words. I do hope you choose to forgive for there is such freedom in it. I know that from experience. Thank you for sharing.
