The promise and potential of life – with all its pains and imperfections – helps break a pattern of trauma.
A lot of times
We get lost in love
But your love’s not enough to die for
My life is worth living
Even if it’s alone
You were the father of my eldest daughter
I let you walk her down the aisle
Cause holding that anger
Kills you daily
You have my forgiveness
I spoke at your funeral
My mother was abused by my father
My grandmother abused by my grandpa
I’m breaking the curse
It ends with me
‘Cause I can let it go
Turn tears into a smile
Lisa Martin, Nora Willauer
Facing one’s past can bring solace and hope.
