How Many
23 December, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


How many times must we forgive
until we forgiven enough
How many times must we be hurt
and invite the hurt back in

How many times must we suffer the pain
of another's scars that won't heal
How many times must we ask this of ourself
only to feel the same way once more

How many times must the heart reach out
returning, only emptiness replies
How many treasured dreams must die
before one begins to feel old from the lies
