Grades (I Forgive You)

Written for Forgiving Fridays. Also, I do forgive myself for how I used to be. I had to learn some lessons about self-worth the hard way. 


I forgive you

For putting so much self-worth into

Some external letters,

Arbitrary evaluation.

 

I forgive you

For when fear of speaking made you run,

Withdrawing, accepting Fs,

Head in the sand from the stress.

 

I forgive you

For putting on an act in the past,

For hiding behind

A graded mask.

  1. Oh this completely touches my heart! I love your poem for #ForgivingFridays 😄😄 I hear your caring and your willingness to forgive. It’s beautiful. One of my great explorations is what forgiveness is for me.

    With great joy I’ll include this in tomorrow’s post. Blessings to your weekend! Debbie
