She wishes she could ring the bell,
and wake everyone up with the sound.
She wants to give them clarity and understanding,
so they will know and be better for it.
She wants to let them know,
that they have been blind this whole time.
But a thought stays her hand and keeps it from ringing the bell,
When did they ever do anything for you?
And so she never rings the bell,
and instead she remembers all the hurt they put her through.
If she keeps dwelling on it, it will consume her,
and their chance will be gone.
Sometimes forgiveness needs to be earned.
Before healing can actually begin.
