After many life-learned lessons and days and years of contemplation,
I wrote myself a poem.
May this poem be a beacon of light for your heart.
That is, if self-forgiveness is what you seek…
I seek forgiveness—
forgiveness from myself
for judging what I did or did not do,
blaming me for failures
only I defined as such.
Driven by the force of merciless,
creating events that give rise to the unyielding force,
wrapped in a long, black,
I did that to myself.
Most of the time.
Forgive me, my heart,
for cutting you short.
Forgive me for playing so harsh,
for causing you grief, self-imposed strain.
for not letting you be free.
Finally, I am learning to forgive.
The iron chain begins to crack,
as I start leaning in and letting go.
my beloved heart,
invincible source and force of love.
