You blame the ones who left
Your ex
The dead
Like they owe you
Closure
There is none of that now
Nothing to give
It is your power
To forgive
There’s so much more life
To live

This was the 3rd most popular poem I wrote in 2019

  1. Thank you for the reminder. I forgive myself everyday for my errors – whether they be typographical or judgemental.
    But on a more serious note, I think it’s important to remember how this can seem as extreme oppression, or just another assault, to those who may have been continuously or recently violated – by the dead and/or the living.
