Ten Years on and my grudge has now gone

You betrayed my trust and became an enemy

 

One thing I despise is arrogance and cockiness

You crossed the line, you were just too sure of yourself

 

I found you out just in time, playing me and playing my family

Causing extreme anger and tears

 

My boiling rage meant I couldn’t turn the page

You broke the privilege of being my friend

 

When you moved away I still prayed for the day

For my chance to even the score or win my war

 

As years have past you become less important

Other troubles had come and gone

 

It seems a waste of energy to right your wrong

Ten years on and we speak again

 

 Your apology accepted and not rejected

I still doubt the sincerity and honesty

 

On the inside I have a flicker of rage

But after so long it stays in its cage

 

Although never fully forgiven and the flame still burns

I continue to move on and live and learn
