Forgive The Dragon
14 October, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Once again the dragon spits it's evil venom
it's acid burns through to the heart
You would think me immune by now
so many direct hits to my core

But still it's effects are crippling
The anger was in perfect wrath
Inflicted the wounds reopen
and life's blood again spills

What does the hatred accomplish
does it cause the dragons hurt to subside
will it allow time to heal the wounds
or fester never to heal again

I try to avoid the dragon
side stepping on its fragile ground
afraid of making the wrong movement
stirring its never deep slumber

But to live afraid of living
afraid to make a move
what kind of life is left
there is no life in constant fear

I can't escape her dragons their venom or her wall
Too high to climb too far to fall
So I quietly tiptoe on the fallen leaves
my heart burned and scorched scarred soul

And to the dragon I rebel
Never to give in to its plight
it's tortured soul must be worse then mine
So I forgive the dragon it's crimes
