They say love is unconditional

Love is forever eternal

but I know the truth

Love is a lie


I came to you a child perfect

and your love was a wreck

a love that ruined

a dishonest raising


How does a parent disown

the flesh that is their own?

how does a child move on

and learn to love?


The ask forgiveness easy

forgetting what they did to me

but I can’t forget

even if I do forgive


I am not angry just hurt

I was treated less than dirt

but I have to build the bridge?

and they don’t understand


I know unconditional love, true

and I will forgive you

but I will always reserve

my hesitancy and never forget
