Truth revealed, causing family split
ill feeling caused through greed
Anger is a natural reaction
but i must not allow it to consume me
I must forgive, for my own sanity
as she is family
though she did the wrong
i cannot blame her children/my cousins
as my love for them has not changed
Forgiving her is for her children's sake
As i wouldn't have been able to
but i love them and i don't want to lose them
so i must for their sakes
or i will remain stuck in the past with unhealed hurts
so forgiving is easy forgetting it is not possible
As the memories of pain remains with the heart
Truth won in the end, but parting of the ways
was the outcome
When it is a stranger it doesn't hurt as much
but when they are your blood relative
it hurts like hell
Now she stands on the outside, looking in
while i remain asking why?
why did u put the blame on me?
why was money more important then me?
why did u continue to lie?
You got caught and u continued to lie
is your need for your own selfish needs
more important to you
When i was young i looked up to u
now i can only look down upon u
Your need for money made u blind
and now u must reap your rewards
that have only brought u misfortune
Did u think of the pain that u would cause me?
and if u did care why did u do it anyway?
your material riches will not last
as they are slowly but surely being taken away from u
Was it really worth it?
did u enjoy yourself?
and are u happy?
I know your not, as your features are becoming distorted
your being is showing physical discomfort
your life is crumbling
I can only pity u
though I've been told to hate u
but i can't
all i can do is forgive u
in time i may love u again
but will u ever be able to look me the in the eye
u turn away in shame
as i look at u
your guilt comes shining through
you avoid my gaze
are u afraid of what u will see
u should be
as i cannot help my feelings from showing
as pain last longer
Judge gave her verdict
and u gained nothing
and lost everything
and i gained respect for standing my ground
you lost all for greed
and i regained all that i had lost and more
the moral of this
is to not put greed ahead of loved ones
it is not worth it in the end
as u end up alone
depressed and unhappy
I forgive u
but i my heart won't forget
