Letting Go
« on: February 24, 2020, 08:51:48 AM »
I kept my word, and silent lay
 in the grave, the whole of the

 Tho it pains my heart to give
 up what once was dearest to my
 heart...I no longer feel the
 need to pretend to be who I am

 I no longer live my life for
 the innocent who now must live
 their own life, and follow the
 paths of parenthood for themselves.

 So much, I could say, that is
 better left unsaid.
 Live for the living
 Let the dead bury the dead.

 I would not change one bitter
 word said in anger; or erase one
 line of hate sent my way..
 For, I no longer can feel the pain.

 Life makes no promise the sun
 will always shine in a day;
 that every word spoken will be kind;
 That the ending of life will be better
 than the beginning of ones life.

 You are each grown now-smile.....
 You make the choices......You pay
 the prices.

 Love never turns to hate-love linger
 waiting to be recognized.

Tho it may never be in this lifetime.

I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
