Empathy and Forgiveness

A word not many understand or demonstrate

Understanding why people are the way they are and not taking things personally

How can you place judgement on someone, when you aren’t able to relate to what they are going through

How are you able to recommend, when you can’t understand

When you haven’t been through what I have, what others have, how can you judge

I am able to feel others pain, as I have felt many pains, myself

I have made choices in life, not always the right choices, because I have put the needs of others before mine

I value others feelings before I value my own

Your happiness means more to me, than my own

I’ve neglected myself for so long, to build you up and it wasn’t enough

So I chose me for once. I saved myself, before there was no more left Of me to save

I took the time I needed and I brought myself back to life, only for you to try to take it away from me, again

You hold two keys, to my happiness, my life, who I live for, keys you don’t even own and you choose to take them too

I understand why you do the things you do, you’re broken too

How can you be who you’re supposed to, for others, when you cannot put your own pieces back together

How can you continue to break others, why? because you are broken yourself

Why do you choose to hurt the people who have loved you the most

I pray that one day, you will choose you

You will realize that the only way to fix you, is by facing them

By forgiving all who have wronged you
