Misplaced Missive #84 – Forgiveness

How can you tolerate it?
Forgive
Not seek revenge?
Pretend
It Never Happened

but It did.
And you just keep it in.
Letting time heal and time mend,
What never should’ve been
(Forgiven)
And I can’t comprehend it.

You’re holding me back
From a justified act.
Do you honestly believe
They deserve to be forgiven?

Impotent anger and ineffectual violence
You asked me to keep my silence
Since you refused to pursue…
Keep your confidence,
Since charges would lead nowhere…
But my heart cries out for justice.
Why must this be the right path?
How can you ask me to stand back?

They stole your control.
Truth be told,
The only way I know
To react to thieves,
To sinners , like these
Is to end them.
Let God sort it out.

Do you honestly believe
They deserve to be forgiven?
