Poets United prompt #26 is Forgiveness, so many directions one could go in. There is so much emotional baggage attached. I try to forgive, but I have trouble, with the forget. I am not so sure, I would consider this wise~
“The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.”
~ Thomas S. SzaszMap of your heart with hills in the road,
Memory gauges your journey back. Shift into
Gear, move past the speed bumps, recalculate the
Risk, Soul wounded, sharp turns, curves a head
Rubbernecking wreck, release handicap thoughts.
Detoured mood, apply emergency brake,
Let go of the wheel, Wrong directions, Lost!
Geography of soul's landscape changes,
Blue lights appear, a violation of your emotions
Survey you, service your brakes, timing chain clogged.
Dead Man's Curve appears, Stop the pain
Yield and repair. Parking permitted here~
