Never Forgive, Remain A Victim

I've made myself a vow
A creed by which to live
Remain a hurting victim
So I never need forgive

Remind the one who hurt me
Their wounds have caused me pain
Then when the wounds have healed
Rip them open once again

I'm determined to remind them
Just in case they might forget
That though they have moved on
I'm in the past still yet

I refuse to let it go
I refuse to let it cease
I will remain a victim
I don't want them to have peace

But Jesus Christ the victim
Of my lust, my pride, my sin
Covered wounds I caused with Mercy
Never brings up my past again

If I want to be made whole
I forgive those who cause strife
There's only death for victims
The forgivers have true life

To learn to forgive is to learn to live

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying forgive if ye have anything against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
