Given Forgiveness

The bullies

They have found me

Hiding away

My heart lights on fire

 

The insults

Rub like salt

Into my open wounds

 

“I forgive you.”

 

I hear myself say.

 

Their faces confused

Not quite understanding

Realising

 

The fogginess clears

With just me left standing there
