20210311_043203Bitterness will eat you up,
Make you now its slave.
Bitterness will fill your cup,
Drink from it always.

Bitterness affects your life,
Happiness not found.
Bitterness will grind you up,
Churning round and round.

Must forgive if you be free
From what holds you down.
Must depart from bitter roots,
Or in them you’ll drown.

Sadness steals the joyful heart,
Turns a smile to frown,
When forgiveness not engaged,
Bitter root is grown.

Please forgive, twill set you free
From your slavery.
Let it go, alive now be,
Heart now filled with glee.
