Learning to Forgive

Words coming down,

Hurtful and unnoticeable.

Pang settles in the heart,

Uncomfortable and unbearable.

Next comes the tears,

Wanting to wipe away,

Yet with pride in the way,

It is only through pretending

Will it come out as an itchy eye.

With all of the disappointment,

Shouldn't it be better

To forget all about who was wrong

And focus instead

On how to reconnect the bridge

That has been broken

When those words were released?
