n.o.w.~forever violet {by sarah nean bruce}

you may have crushed my heart,
but you did not crush my spirit.
.
i did not shrink,
i let go,
i flourished,
i grew taller.
.
i forgave you,
i forgave myself.
i forgave the stars.
.
the love i have, the love i gave ~
is forever violet,
forgiving,
healing,
fragrant,
ever-radiant.
.
much, a.d.o.

inspired by ~

Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. ~ Mark Twain
