I don't have to see justice,
Or revenge, or retribution.
I learned to let it go
because justice lives
In my freedom to choose
To choose to forgive you
and all that has happened
To let go of the hurts and loses
because they don't allow growth
but bind and chain me to a past
I would rather not become.
This is what happens when
I dwell there. So instead
I free myself by choosing to
Forgive never forgetting the past
that has made me. Knowing
more than ever my story, exploring
Each place where fear lived and
Finding it can't hurt me anymore.
By this others know my story too.
Have even lived parts and I pray
Have become free too.
Free to truly live.
