Poem: Forgive to Live

Updated on March 19, 2013
Source

It’s so hard to think about forgiving,

When you’ve been hurt so bad,

You just want to start swinging and screaming,

Because you feel so devastated and sad,


You must learn to forgive,

But never forget,

You must learn to forgive,

Because you must be motivated to live,


Loyalty, trust and honesty,

The most important things to you,

Only to be met by lies and deceit,

With the final blow being that we are over and through,


You must learn to forgive,

But never forget,

You must learn to forgive,

Because you must be motivated to live,


Don’t want to feel this way always,

But it is a constant struggle from day to day,

It takes a lot energy and head space,

Feelings of being in a stuck place,


You must learn to forgive,

But never forget,

You must learn to forgive,

Because you must be motivated to live,


There are a few who’ve given up and thrown in the towel,

Staying in a place of darkness and remaining let down,

Moving on seeming to be hard,

Especially with a hardened heart and let up guard,


You must learn to forgive,

But never forget,

You must learn to forgive,

Because you must be motivated to live … then begin again.
