When a grudge invades your heart
it weaves a web of sin,
and your soul becomes ensnared
as darkness grows within.

Tangled webs intrigue revenge,
the two walk hand-in-hand,
staking claim to evil whims
that spread at their command.

So . . .

When a grudge takes hold of you
don't let it have its way.
Release it to the Father
and then just walk away.

For we should love our neighbors
as God loves you and me.
And we should not hold grudges . . .
forgive, and set them free.

This poem was a finalist in the January 2023 poetry contest
