Ah to be forgiven
Of how I hurt the ones I love
Oh, but what a silly whim
The past rules what we do in our hearts
Forgive, what a lying word
It deceives our minds
Into thinking that it can change the world
But really, it isn't very kind.
Before one is forgiven
There is the trial
Where one is put on the stand with hatred filling the room
And everything that is said is stored in a secret file.
Next is the loneliness
Where people who were once your friends
Turn their backs on you
And you begin to see there might be no end.
Then the thoughts of death comes upon one
Where you feel terribly hopeless
And then you think, "I guess I did deserve this."
But you have to wonder, "Is it worth this torture?"
Maybe after an hour, day, or year
Those you once thought of as being close
Begin to reappear
But of course, things can never be the same.
The one who you did wrong shows there face to you
And you see how you have crippled their faith
But then you see
Forgiveness never lasts
Are you ready?
