Forgiving your trespasses

20131116-102337.jpg
You came into our lives when we were young
You came into our lives at a desperate time
You came into our lives with different views
You came into our lives you worked hard
You came into our lives you provided for us
You came into our lives and gave us a brother
You came into our lives and gambled on the horses
You came into our lives you drank when you lost
You came into our lives with anger rage and guilt
You came into our lives and took your pain out on us
You came into our lives you beat us with words and more
You came into our lives and drove us away
You came into our lives causing hate and pain
You came into our lives I forgave you
You came into our lives acceptance and sad memories remain

I was at a loss as to what to write this month, until I read Rara’s post:

  1. Robert,
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart. As you know, I am a survivor as well, so this poem hit home. I love your acceptance and forgiveness. I love your acknowledgement of positive contributions from this “enemy.” I love the structure of “You came into our lives.” Thank you so much for helping me heal with your honesty, courage, and poetry. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo
