You still live in every breath that exhales. 

I thought my anger could empower me against you. 

But now I find you inspiring me to be a better person. 

Maybe I never needed to change, maybe I was waiting all this time for you to catch up. 

They say to forgive and let go but my forgiveness is only giving me the fear of letting go. 

I see our differences but they’re no longer daggers used to pin each other down. 

I’m learning that the present really is a gift.
