Forgive to Forget
Poetry & Prompts / August 8, 2013

Forgive to Forget There are ghosts roaming in my attic Haunting me and making me sick My father’s face frightening still The bastard still lives up the hill My mother’s silent rage revealed All that she didn’t want to feel As I look back with guileless eyes My head it spins with ugly lies Problem child is a misnomer Those wounds made my spirit stronger My Life can still be grander yet If to forgive is to forget Let that adage be my maxim This new orphan releases them.
