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.
