Poem: Reconciling the Good with the Bad

How do you mourn for someone

who treated you badly?

The memories of the times

make you sad.

You try to cherish the good

and forget the bad.

However, the past

won’t let go.

It holds you tight

and lets you know

that what happened

long ago

you’ll never let go.

You’re left with

reconciling the good

with the bad

and remembering a life

you once had.
