Forgiveness- By Tammy

I no longer fear you.
You have no more
power here.

Your tongue can not
strike me down with
venomous words.

Your reign of terror
has slowly faded
from my mind.

I am no longer your
daughter, desperately
trying to please you.




I am a warrior who
longs to touch you.
You taught me well.

In death you are free
but in life you have
been forgiven.

This one struck a cord with me too....more of the trickle down effect...my Brother was my tyrant but I was much to resilient for anyone to hold me back or down for any length of time...yes I too am the warrior! Fantastic Tammy fantastic!!!
