Is not easy,
How do you forgive,
When they hurt you,
They take your heart,
Your hands,
Your whole being,
Scratch it on a surface,

You then cry,
You sleep,
You pray,
You eat…and you must forgive.

You have been brave
It is not easy,
They say it gets better with time,
They quote scriptures,
They quote books,

No amount of talking can release you to forgive,
Until you wake up and realise that life is too short.

You rise,
You pray,
You forgive.
