“When you hold a grudge, you want someone else’s sorrow to reflect your level of hurt but the two rarely meet.” – Steve Maraboli
The quote above inspired me to write this poem
Holding a grudge
because feeling like
you need crutches
for being hurt.
People will make you feel
lower than dirt.
Thinking of the memory,
intertwined with tight body
will be an emotional feeling
and a vibration goes beyond the body.
Like Michael Jackson
remember the time,
but not when you fell in love
but when your fell in love
with pain and torment.
because individuals are destructive
tossing bombs at you
like your a target.
Now have to go thru a healing process.
Healing process is like boot camp
and doing agility and speed drills
tripping over tires
and the mud on the grass is damp.
We rather be clean
but why does it take so long
to shower off the mud?
We hold on to the sludge
attached to our body
and we blame
the person that pushed
us in the mud.
We hold a grudge
because instead of showering
we stay covered in slime
for other to witness.
These are our lowest moments
because we think we receive
but in reality
nobody gives a fuck.
Caring what other think
will have you holding grudges
when every time you get offended
or stuck in fetal position
in the corner of your room
Hardest thing to accomplish
is learning the art of forgiving.
Letting the past go isn’t always easy
Your past is your own personal history
A history textbook in which can be access by using your memory
The past can be moments of happiness or moments of misery
There is always something that reminds us of the past
Use the 5 senses
Sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell
You see something that reminds you of the past
You hear something that reminds you of the past
You touch something that reminds you of the past
You smell something that reminds you of the past
Life of living in the past is a fatal addiction
Makes you worry like a crazy maniac which leads to a life of unsatisfication
Your mind is your greatest weapon when it comes to surviving
In order to live in this cold world, remember the statement I wrote above if you want to live in peace and satisfaction
Even though the past is not fiction, learn to let it go because you not focusing on what’s really important
Which is the present
In reality you living in the present
No matter how painful the the past, you can always make your future brighter by focusing on the present
Someone once told me if God creates the past and the future, why worry about it.
This is only dedicated to one person.
Can you tell me who this person is?
Not only I want you to think about it, I want you to answer it?
