I Forgive You

Why you did those things I would never know,

But I would know why I stayed.

I stayed because of hope,

Hope that you wouldn’t do those things any longer.

But you did,

Over and over I was used.

Pushed around.

Stepped on.


Yet you did nothing,

But I still forgive you.

I forgive you for getting mad and spreading rumors,

For when you pushed me down,

For when you refused to listen,

Because I am going to be the better person.

I am going to ignore the whispers,

Stand back up,

And talk even if you won’t listen.

For I don’t want to be like you.

I don’t want to put others down.

I don’t want to be feared.

I don’t want to be the one who holds grudges.

Who doesn’t appreciate life.

I want to be the light that keeps someone from going into the darkness.

The person who makes the even saddest person smile.

The person that helps whoever needs it.

So again I say;

I Forgive You.
