Unforgiving

You’re unforgivingUnforgiving Despair

Once ate at my tormented soul

But it eats at yours

A higher power forgave

I do not trudge alone now

  12. Great ending. Haven’t checked out your page in a while but definitely was some good poetry. Loved the ending. Very aggressive against a more modest background. Stood out sharply. Great submission.
