Others will use

Your past

To hurt you

They want you to live

In the version of you

That gives control

Instead of taking it

Others will throw

Barbs at you

Sending your trust

Back as a messenger

Meant to hurt

Leaving wounds

Others will pray

A list of your sins

Your transgressions

Your errors

At the moment

Of your joy

Yet one truth

Remains, always:

You do not have to listen – Caroline A. Slee
