Forgiveness

Standard

I forgave
  because I understand the other perspective
I forgave
  after an apology
I forgave
  for we talked openly
I forgave
  when it was sincere
I forgave
  because I was ignorant
I forgave
  because I was asked
I forgave
  to stop the hate
I forgave
  because I am human

Not sure

Standard

I am no longer a person but an object to be coerced
but you don’t care

I ask one thing but you do another
but you don’t care

Driven me to insanity
but you don’t care

I have lost respect for you
but you don’t care

I speak though you never listen
but you don’t care

You disregard any love I have for you
but you don’t care

You hold relationships hostel
but you don’t care

Every effort I make towards good
you don’t care

Why should I?

-Jennie Nawrocki

A

Standard

world without forced control
or manipulated scenarios
enliven personal trust
provides common sense
respectful relationships
compassionate interactions
acceptance of differences
empathy for mistakes
is not a dream
but a reality to sustain.

Sabotage

Standard

There is a world hidden
it all seems so far away
people and places out of reach
barring communication
pride, dignity, greed is the fight
fueling one’s discontent
from every aspect
excluding the one thing they wish
results damage the efforts towards
a greater relationship
allowing enhanced bonds
leaving emotional waste behind
