    Forgivness of a Woman

    Inside I ache
    From all the past hurts
    From all the past taunts
    I ache, from the voice that seemed so curt.
    But I forgive you
    For all the birthdays you forgot
    For all the calls not made
    For all the cards and flowers I never got
    Outside the bruises
    Have faded with time
    But my spirit still feels
    The effects of pain sublime
    But I forgive you
    For the hurtful words said
    When I sit and listen to
    The voices inside my head
    That tell me
    I should let you go
    Turn my back and walk away
    But they don’t know the things I know
    Your capacity to love
    Overwhelms your compulsion to hit
    How your words so melodous and sweet
    I know we can still be that perfect fit
    They say Love is blind
    I think that it’s deaf
    How else could you explain
    The forgivness of a woman

    although, i have my bruthaz backs...

    there is much that a sistah have to forgive. and everytime i think of how much they have to forgive, i think of that song/movie: "A thin line...between love and hate" girl could only forgive so much before {SNAP} things took a decided different turn.

    thanks Tasha
    keep the flow.

    peace.

    What a woman can forgive extends much further than it should sometimes, even beyond all understanding. Loved the way this was posed.
