For being cruel and unkind
For being unjust and uncivilized
For mistreating me even when I did nothing to provoke it
For not letting me be just be
For the constant judgement
For the ridicule
For the pain
For the frustration
And the fear you instilled in me
For the senseless attacks
For almost killing me
For all the difficulties
For all the distress and heartache
I forgive you world
I truly do
And I love you
I do this because to me it’s the only way to truly live a life worth living; to live a life free of emotion shackles.
I don’t want to be bitter and angry. I don’t want to distrust. I don’t want to become cruel and hardened. I don’t want to live in constant frustration, regret, disenchantment, sadness.
I want to choose happiness…
although I know every choice comes with consequences.
I’m just hoping, praying and giving thanks…….for the consequences that are miraculous.
