“Forgive… sounds good.
Forget…I’m not sure I could.
They say… time heals everything
But I’m still waiting.” — Natalie Maines, Emily Robison, Martie Maguire, Dan Wilson
Would I wish the kind of pain I’ve ever felt on anyone else?
Would I ever want anyone to feel the worst I can ever remember feeling?
Even on those who have hurt me most deeply?
No. No. And no. Never on my account.
Let it end with me.
Let the hurts I’ve hurt end with me like my jacked-up gene mutations
my children, thank God, will not inherit.
Let the letting-go that I’ve let go, go with me. From me. Far from me.
Forgive all. Forgive me. Forget no one.
