My theory is that all grudges are self destuctive.


I don't want to hold a grudge forever
hating you wont do me any good
looking back on what's done
stops the view of what's to come.
It's no way to grow and bloom
resentment stiffles all love's room.
Grudges are best left behind
forgotten even in your mind
never lifted from their doom...
but left to rot in 'Dismissal's' tomb.

It's good to be back reading you again. Yup, those grudges are some son of a bitches and hard to hold onto. Nicely phrased.

I agree 100% with your pithy writing of great wisdom. We must be ever vigilant to wipe all grudges from our minds and hearts lest they take root and cause destruction to our spirit. Powerful words of insight!

And I couldn't agree more, Kay! For years I held an awful grudge against my ex...until I finally realized he was one of my greatest teachers....I learned more about myself from him than I realized in my youth.....Well done!

Although it is often human nature to want to get even or get revenge, you are so right, in the long run itusually only ends up hurting us more.
Reviewed by John Flanagan 11/8/2011
A noble and positive perspective, Kay,
big thinking, right thinking.

Reviewed by jude forese 11/7/2011
grudges are poison ... our bodies and souls are the containers corroded by them ... it is best to drain such poison from our beings, so our souls can be nourished by the very forgiveness we offer ...

powerful substance to this poem ...
