if one has claimed they have changed,
question how much of a change.
letting go or growing up
is very much a part of the process,
but both, or none, can not fully be
present without forgiving.
forgive those that nearly killed you.
but most importantly,
dont forget to ask for the forgiveness
that you too need, due to the blood on your own hands.
it is a two way street with this kind of honest change.
to ask, takes a transparent change.
