In the person whose blood my veins carry
I searched for love but I found hate
I looked for peace but found pain in every word that came out of his deadly mouth which craved to wound my soul
And every letter that escaped the jaws of his mouth pumped hate into the heart of my existence
Hate that closed chapters of laughter and burnt down bridges of unity
hate that shot down the energy
which channeled between us
hate that slowly ate affection leaving my
heart empty and I could only hear echoes of my broken heart beaten rhythmically to the tears that danced down my cheeks But I have realised that forgiveness is the wings that emotions fly with so I outgrew my age and became the bigger person
Even though things may never be as they were at first my conciousness is clear my emotions know peace and my heart is learning how to love once again
