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.
