Time for Peace
by: Tanya Robertson

Holding back the tears and years of pain you caused
The anger rises in me like a volcano ready for eruption
My better judgment told me to let you go
Torn between who you are and who you were supposed to be
Obliged to make you comfortable while burying my deepest pain
Today I release the power that I’ve given away
I will never forget, but I’m ready to forgive
It’s time for me to have peace again…
