Forgiving is a difficult feat,
yet is it possible to ever truly forget?
To completely void out a past hurt or betrayal,
or would forgiveness be easier?
It would seem not, for to exonerate one,
who has hurt you to your core,
is a lesson in humility that you did not ask for.
Yet, forgiveness is the key to releasing the hold,
that controls all those pent-up emotions.
But the very act of forgiving is emotional in itself, right?
So, what is one to do when forgiveness comes a calling?
You could always just….forget about it!
