How to repair what you tore away
Embedded each detail, causing dismay
Anger, resentment, an eye for an eye
Lingering doubt while questioning why
Imminent danger, enticed to strike back
Numbing distortion, white's painted black
Grief over innocence, stolen by you
Aged 20 years, yet so little I grew
Buried a secret, too much to bear
Unable to keep down, disclose do I dare?
Searching I look for serenity's road
End all this chaos, I have to unload
But how can I heal a pain that's vein-deep?
Years of denial, I spoke not a peep
Forgive, I must do this, I cannot ignore
Open old wounds to heal at my core
Remember the child that I used to be
Grieve for that loss, set my anger free
Invite all my demons, destroy their sick game
Value myself, redirect blame
Imagine direction then let myself go
Navigate forward while taking it slow
Gift of forgiving will heal me I know...
