There comes a time
To say good-bye
To all the hurts from the past.
When forgiveness,
Questions of why
Are answered and we’re free at last.

Things that happened
Will always be
Part of our journey and song.
Stories of how
We overcame
Bring courage and strength to move on.

Past hurts and pain
Don’t go away
When we repress and deny.
They are instead
Material for
Building and holding to a lie.

Take courage, then,
To heal and grow,
Until past hurts have no teeth.
Face the monsters;
Create new ways
To believe and feel, live and be.
