It's Five Minute Friday..

Yes, I realize it is Saturday.

Five Minute Friday

Today's prompt: After

It was the moment when I finally got what I wanted:
I had been planning, waiting, executing for years.
All for this one sweet moment.
I thought I would revel to see their suffering
I thought it would give me such great joy
To see Karma do its thing.
All I really feel is.. pity.
I spent a half a lifetime... for THIS?
We're all the same aren't we?
Broken bits and pieces of what we once were..
what we could've been.
If I had just learned to forgive
From the beginning...
Then I wouldn't feel so empty.
If I could just let go
And allow healing then I wouldn't be here..
Trying to figure out my next move.
For that ultimate high.

  1. I love this! It's funny how we don't seem to realize how anticlimactic that moment of 'revenge' can be -- until, of course, it's behind us. Thanks for sharing and the reminder. Forgiveness is a good thing. Visiting from FMF.
