Forgiveness 102

Resentment used to run in my veins.
Once upon a time,
I felt poisoned with this thing
coursing through my body.
I resented certain people and things
that corrupted my perfect surroundings.
Forgiveness was the love I used
to cleanse my heart from carrying grudges.

Her Strength

Everyday she fakes it
like it was the last day she’d be alive
Even though, she’s tired, depressed,
frustrated, angry, stressed…
you name it, she’s going through it
but she does not complain.
Every day, she musters the strength to make it.
