Safe Past

“To forgive is to visit the past and come back safe and sound.”

She read those words

Shuddered just a bit

The truth hit hard

Maybe it was not quite that easy

But then again

Maybe it was

She only knew

This much was true

She had to forgive herself

For holding the silence in

For keeping the ‘peace’

When she should have screamed

She visited the past

Saw the child she was

And told her that she was

Safe and sound, now
