The Grudge in me (poem)

The grudge in me (poem)


Tell me what do you see when you look at me?

A man? A body? yet surely there is more to see.


For within this heart is a grudge, waging war with the one above.

My every thought attacks my spiritual family, with daggers I fire as they were my enemy.


without a word uttered, i stutter in my mind to fund something kind, to say

and to my dismay i find that when I don’t pray, these thoughts seem to stay.


So instend of peace, i feast on holding a grudge

kept within it has become, a mark missed, known as sin.


and it would seem, it has chained me up like a bad dream

o i scream, HOW CAN I BE FREE?


and as I opened my heart to lord, it began to be,

as he revealed to me the proverb your about to see…


Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirs up strife,
    but love covers all offenses
