I saw your pain everywhere

I started doing the things I wanted

I used to be afraid to enjoy myself out of fear that you’d want revenge

But today I enjoyed it anyway

And I saw beyond your anger

I saw your denial

I saw your pain everywhere

Everywhere

You consuming overwhelming awesome aching pain

It was more real than any lie you ever told

You set fire to my forest in the name of justice to watch it burn

But fire clearing is a native practice to keep the forest healthy

I just want you to know, it’s okay. Thanks for making me stronger, brighter, lighter, easier

I can feel the canopy breathing in clouds

You helped me become the kind of person who meets the challenge of your revenge with my forgiveness

And now I’m so cool
