I Forgive but Never Forget

Why did you put him in command?
Why did you me shun?
Is it because he is your son?
Or is it because he’s a man?
Not a chance, you gave me none
Desperately, you made me run

Now it’s too late
At least for him
To conquer hate
For years to come

But in spite of all that
Heart drums beat fast
Deafening my ears
When your voice I hear

It’s love mother dear
To whom I succumb

    Inta kila hungry wi bas?

    It’s not easy dear, but we do that with our loved ones specially family.

    Sorry babe I didn’t mean to do that. I meant to show in this piece that some people whom are close to our hearts can hurt us either unintentionally or through ignorance, but we can’t not forgive them no matter how much this damage is to our lives. An example here is a mother that unintentionally caused a deep wound between her son and daughter, but he doughter does not have any choice but to forgive her.

    Parents always deserve our forgiveness. Unless they’re baby eaters or something.

    To forgive, and to forget..

    To forgive: the choice to not act harshly against the offender. by actions, words or thoughts.

    To forget: to lose memory of the offense. no concious choice in the matter. you just forget by having a weak memory, or the matter is not important enough to stick in memory.

    So the 1st is an act of kindness and generousity. the 2nd is not an act of anything, because we have no control over it. therefor its not a sign of kindness, but perhaps a sign of a different priority of things. like if we might think such an action is hurtful to anyone, it might not be that hurtful to this person who forgot about it.

    It’s not a matter of deserving, it’s more a matter of heart. Even if you don’t want to forgive your parents, you just can’t.

    Sometimes you have to make yourself forget, because the memory is too painful.
    But the question is how can we easily forgive family, but we find it hard to do the same with our loved ones.

    Inta sayim, that’s why.

    Anytime 🙂

    Yeh, 3almeeh
