VENGEANCE

Vengeance is a tragic thing
We think it heals the pain
When all it really does
Is help our hatred to sustain

What’s happened in the past
Is just a part of us I know
When will we ever learn
That you just have to let it go

The wounds will never heal
As long as we hold to them fast
We lose the present always
Trying to avenge the past
