I forgive you for being stupid.
I forgive you for falling for something that was right in front of your view.
I forgive you for doing it over and over again.
I forgive you for crying yourself to sleep
And wondering what it was you did wrong.
I forgive you for believing that you did something wrong.
I’m sorry that you believed like the fault was yours,
I’m sorry that I aided that belief.
I’m sorry you had to go through that.
I forgive you for staying and hoping for the best even when you knew it wasn’t going to happen.
I forgive you for not being cynical when you clearly should have been
I forgive you for making mistakes
It wasn’t your fault, my love.
It wasn’t your fault that you’re basically good in a world where the basically bad always win.
I forgive you for being all you could be.
You should have given up when you knew you’d never make it to the finish line.
But you tried.
And I forgive you for that.
I’m sorry that your heart is good.
I’m sorry you were born with the qualities of a gentle and kind human being.
Those people seem to have ceased to exist.
I’m sorry you have morals.
I’m sorry you know what ethics are.
That’d be so much easier.
But you do have morals
and you know the difference between right and wrong.
And you’re so good.
I’m sorry you know how to love.
I forgive you for loving endlessly and without reserve
EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME.
And that’s okay.
That’s how you are.
I forgive you for being yourself.
And I’m sorry I can’t help you change.
I’m really sorry the world is so different from you.
I’m sorry you feel alone and like you don’t belong.
But I forgive you.
