Peace Deserved

In the quiet of my soul lingers hatred, 
for the wrongs that have been done unto me. 
And there I lie in pain, 
suffering in my self inflicted agony. 
Tho they may deserve my anger, 
the wrath that pours like rain, 
my loathing is a danger 
to a heart that's filled with shame. 
On each star I find a victory, 
a lesson to be earned. 
In my heart I find a longing to forgive 
a yearning for a new leaf to be turned. 
The fire in my soul burns away the past 
the ashes fly away and I am released at last.
