Forgiveness is a conscious choice
It must begin first in your head
In an aware and planned way
Sometime change engenders dread

Sincerity involves the heart
Need to realize time to let go
Monsters live and thrive in the dark
Pain involved in having to grow

Prison caused by anger and hurt
Trust is not something that is free
Forgiveness is a conscious decision
Trust is destroyed for you and me

Will never be okay, never
Forgiving does not mean to say
What was done then, is now okay
Wasn't right when it was done

Forever it will not be right
Forgiveness does not change the past
Does not erase what was done then
The years are passing too fast

No consent for enabling
Time to move on with living
Thoughts are ever turning backward
Have been thinking of forgiving

When I have it all worked out
I shall write for you a letter
Leaving it for you to read
When I am gone, this is better
