Forgive and Forget

December 13, 2009 § 3 Comments

He will not forgive. But he wills himself to forget.

Forgiveness is hard. Forgiving someone takes strength. It demands sacrifice. Sacrifice of the right to hate, to abhor someone. He is not strong. And he needs the right to hate.

To forget is easy. All it requires is a hate so strong that oneโ€™s heart shivers at the prospect of remembrance.

He builds walls to imprison the memory. Walls so high, so wide, so thick that even angels of light fear to thread within. The memory lies within these walls, cold and shivering, forgotten. It will eventually die a quiet, undignified death in the recesses of these walls.

But the walls will remain, just in case.
