forgiveness hides beneath lower abdominal scar tissue
adhering steadfastly, until it rises as bitter resentment
and colors every move you make
rip it open
before you forget how to smile

I am currently holding a grudge against someone, and need to let it go. This is my warning to myself.
Thank you to We Write Poems for the posting space this month.
Good way to write it out, Brenda! Hope it helps!
This poem reads suspiciously like the effect that jealousy has had on me in the past. Good cathartic writing.
Writing a poem is a good way to deal with the grudge (and accomplishes something positive). Plus we will never tell!
