Art: Me Too: Forgiveness is the Best Revengeness by Artist Alma Lee

Me Too, Original drawing by Alma Lee my story...

consumed with shame
wracked by guilt
only myself to blame
yet to tell you why
I can't.

Long ago silence broken
disbelief welcomed me
and willed his name left unspoken
for 8 years I cried, could not let it be.

My secret rage ate at my heart
no relief came, nothing that could be done
as it ripped me apart
Till the day i confronted the truly guilty one

He didn't understand what he had done
or the hurt that became my life
so I told him and then for reason I can not fathom
My forgiveness cut him like a knife

Niether of us could be the same
me finally freed, to love again
him guilty, and forever shamed

Though never over I begin again.
