Can forgiveness be given through flesh?

Me being me

Me being me

Can forgiveness really be given through flesh?

Now more than ever

as an adult I’ve tried to put the past aside

And look towards my present.

I think constantly of those memories

The memories of self sabotage

The memories of self harm

The moments I thought this would last forever

All gone to dust

Now forever a memory

The hurt is their but I will no longer let it Brew

In me like a burden

This will no longer play a part in my life

You will no longer be a part of my heart

You will not be apart of my future

For no one knows what the future may hold.

I do know one thing, I will succeed and move

Forward towards my destiny.

So true! Its hard but if we push through and remind ourselves that this past hurt will no longer be valued in our future. We have so much to be grateful for . :) thank you for responding means alot!

The struggle to put the past behind us is a rough one, your strength and determination shine through these words. I'm always tearing myself from the past, leaving the pain where it belongs, but every now and again it nibbles at your heart and you give in to it like a feeling of nostalgia.

This poem really resonates with me right now, and I thank you for sharing.
