Address of the Wall of Unforgiveness

Even though you mean well

There are some who don’t think you do

They interpret the wrong way

Even scold and yell at you

You’re trying to be friendly and have fun

Interacting with people you want to get to now

Still you’re stopped in your tracks

Being told to just go

Bitter emotions rile up

Anger, resentment, and hate

Sometimes you wanna make the person pay

Make them not feel great

It can be hard to trust anyone

What happened you don’t wanna talk about

Even when you don’t mean to

Can still lead to lashing out

You try hard to have fun

So you can get a break

Still the bitter feelings don’t go away

New relationships are difficult to make

You even try to meditate

Try to find what’s good on a bookshelf

It can also be hard to look in the mirror

Even on most days you hate yourself

It’s hard to forget what happened

Really doesn’t make you feel well

Will the wall ever break down?

Time will definitely tell

  1. Wow Ryan, that’s really eye-opening, telling, and deep …

    My favorite part of the whole poem was:
    “Try to find what’s good on a bookshelf
    It can also be hard to look in the mirror.”

    I can relate very well …
