damages paid?

damages paid?

who paid?

them?

they never will

settle that bill

 

black and blue

turns to yellow

eventually disappears

bruises to the mind however

are scars for years and years

 

do your own work

put soul at ease

forgiveness is

your inner peace

 

the screams are muffled

the fear is stifled

then you move away

but you bring it all there with you

until you break— away

 

do your own work

put soul at ease

forgiveness is

your inner peace

 

they sleep at night

you don’t

might be time to

cut that rope

and— free yourself

 

damages paid

in full

by you
