I forgive me for being an Ass
I forgive me for the problems I’ve created in the past
I forgive me for the stresses that I bring on
I forgive me for not liking my birth mom
I forgive me for the hurt I internalize
I forgive me for not reaching for that elusive prize.
I forgive you for the judgments that you make
I forgive you for the stances you take
I forgive you for the opinions you make…
My life is a song I chose to sing
No longer listening to the voices whispering in the wind
Those voices that try to keep me at bay
Because of my success, come what may
I’ll sing this song… loud and proud
Forever standing my ground.
In life, no matter what may be,
The value I give… is a value to me.
From a childhood of abuse
to an adulthood filled with pain
I chose to stand firm with the decisions that I’ve made
I chose to love me
In spite of what you say.
The picture that I see
Is the picture I portray.
