Forgiven, but, not forgotten

Forgiveness....

Forgiveness, for me, it's hard to come by, I don't forgive easily, some people say, I
don't forgive at all..

For those people, resentment and anger fuel all my actions towards you...

Is it too much to hope for that when your time comes, you'll be sentenced to eternal
damnation?

Is it wrong of me to wish that on someone?

But, today, today is a new day, I will move past my anger and hatred that I have towards
you.....All sins are forgiven....

But, do keep in mind, while I have forgiven you, I have not, nor will I ever forget what
you have done....

You are are forgiven, but, your actions will never be forgotten.....
