I held a contest on my Poems page on Facebook to name this poem. The winner’s name is listed.
Left In Peace
Written by: Tonya Ross
Named by: Jenni Sumner
I will not beg and plead,
Nor scold or yell or brew,
I will not search and seek,
Nor follow or chase or stalk you.
If space is what you are after,
Space is what I will give,
Cause darlin’ it’s not worth my time,
I still have a lot of life to live.
Life is too short to wallow in anger,
I won’t sit by looking pensive,
For the sake of my future,
Remorse will not hold me captive.
We all make mistakes it’s part of life,
I don’t make small things so massive,
It’s really not worth a fight,
I choose to forgive.
