The High Road

What choices have you left me with?
Now what is left to do?
You’ve broken all your promises,
You’ve torn my heart in two.

I’ve given this a lot of thought,
I’ve mused it over well.
How can I act like heaven,
When you’ve treated me like hell?

I could always take the high road
And forgive the things you’ve done.
However, on the other hand,
The low road’s much more fun.

I could not return your phone calls,
I could burn up all your notes.
I could take out all my anger
As flames engulf the things you wrote.

I could ignore you out in public,
I could throw your gifts away.
But the problem with those options is
My anger will not sway.

If I do take the low road,
My hatred will just grow.
It will bottle up inside me,
‘Til I’m filled with bitter woe.

Now if I take the high road,
The outcome may be changed.
If I chose to let it go,
My mind won’t go insane

I won’t be bothered by revenge,
No anger to take out.
I can move along with life,
Forget what you’ve lied about.

I don’t have to excuse you,
For the the way you’ve done me wrong.
I just have to forgive you
So I can pick up and move on.

I guess I’ll take the higher road,
I know I’ve made my choice.
I have to learn to stand my ground,
To speak with my own voice.

In answer to your question,
“Will I forgive you, yes or no?”
I will forgive but not forget,
Painful memories seldom go.
