About the Poem
This is a poem about growth and the need for acceptance that most strive for. Writing this poem was part of a healing process which allowed me to grow beyond the resentment, and allowed me to accept the fact that there are things that we will never be able to comprehend.
Thank You For The Memories
|Thank you for the memories
Of a love that's less than true
for the lessons learned were plenty
and the happy times were few.
And I thank you for your support,
the support you would never give
when I needed you the most,
those times, I can't forgive
I thank you for your love,
a love that didn't exist,
for all my childhood memories
are those of pounding fists.
And I really want to thank you
For loving only some,
I tried my best to please you,
But love for me was none.
So I thank you with my heart and soul
for but one good lesson learned
That should one day I love someone,
My love they need not earn.
