I Forgive You

You hurt my sister, you hurt me-then lie and say it never happened
-you hurt my family and then come back-like it was supposed to disappear in a second
-i didn't understand, i was confused-aren't you supposed to be in jail?
-aren't you supposed to suffer your consequences?-aren't you on your way to hell?
-a year later, you marry my mama-i guess I'm the only one who remembered
-that fateful day that's fresh in my mind-sometimes it made me too sick to eat dinner
-i didn't like you but you liked me-i didn't want someone like you to love me
-i thought this was another trick up your sleeve- or so you can victimize me
-you wondered why i hated you-sometimes I'd gage just by saying your name
-the sound of your name made floods of memories-drive me completely insane
-you called me a "ho", you called me "stupid"- you confused me everyday
-you said i was talented and so smart-then you turn around and curse my name
-you called me an "animal" and we always fight-you wanted to be closer to my heart
-but not like father and daughter-the lust in your eyes was so deep and dark
-you slapped me and pushed me around-you called me a "dumb ass" sometimes
-you'd make me hate to want to be myself-you made me for hate the sun to shine
-But God won't forgive me until forgive-what you've done to me first
-I'll try to respect you more-and sometimes it does really hurt
-i used to wish you would die-but realize it's me who's dying
-i let these thoughts control me-and your eyes that left me crying
-but in order for me to be where i want to be-with my Lord,then there's something i need to do
-i want you to know that after 5 years of suffering-i finally and truly forgive you
