Venerate

I wish I could have saved you the trouble.
I really do.
Perhaps my absence
will finally teach you
that there is only one
incontestable truth
that permeates this universe;
Each of us,
man or woman,
is responsible
for our own life.
Your pain will never end
for as long as you hold
someone else
accountable for our happiness.
It is a wasteful endeavor.
You must be brave enough
to give yourself the love
you did not receive,
strength enough
to give yourself the apologies
you did not receive,
and the heart
to give yourself
the peace of mind
that you did not receive.
I just wish
that you could have learned this
sooner.
