To a person close to my heart, but someone who wounds me deeply.

Each word is like poison

It drips from your mouth

Over and over

Your speak hurtful words


He is not good enough

He does not try

He will not succeed

For sure he will fail


Do you honestly believe

You are helping us out

Feeding us venom

Destroying our strength


I long to run

To escape from here

I wish I could scream

And tell you how I feel


But I cannot

And I will not

I must push forward

Though I struggle and fall


God keep me faithful

Keep my anger in check

I long to forgive

Have mercy and patience


I am so sorry

For my disdainful remarks

But I am not sorry

For the solace they bring.
