I used to wonder
how people
could become
so full,
with anger,
and hatred.
But then I remember
all of the times
were I was abused,
taken advantage of,
back stabbed,
lied to,
and left for dead,
and I get it.
I really get it.

  1. I, too, have experienced such things. Many of us have. But I still do not “get it.” The trick, I think, is to make yourself less like a container, which can be filled with negativity, and more like a sieve. How do we become more like a sieve? We learn to understand, to accept what has happened, to forgive those who wrong us, and to focus on finding peace within ourselves as we move forward with our lives.
