Forgiving Me - Poem

Suicidal thoughts run deep in my mind like the penetration of the man who has raped a young child of her innocence.

The pain from an imperfect life and broken reputation has killed all of my dreams leaving me empty,

Lifeless,

Hopeless.

While the battle to ignore, and move past the past, forgive, rebuild or abandon a dead me leaves me bleeding

Bloody,

Torn,

Sick.

Sick of the life I have lived

Sick of the punctured soul within

There is none

There

IS

NONE

No respect

Enormous regret

Perpetuated accidents

Incidents on replay

Recorded repeatedly making me hate my life again and again…

Breathe…

Courage

Faith

Strength

The knowledge that I am not alone, removes the gun that once lay under my pillow,

Erases the bruises that were once covered by baggy clothes,

Cures the disease that is carried in my purse,

And creates the love that has never been.

Always in reach, yet never given life because of ignorance

Ugliness

My

Forgiveness begins

And

Suicidal thoughts ran deep inside yet now removed because of my love invented to purify.

The soul that was once punctured is now healed

Me

The epitome of an imperfect perfection

Recreated to love the skin I am in

Me.
