a grudge haunts you,
by Stella Sisanda Qishi
it gnaws at you,
it redefines you.
a grudge keeps total bliss at bay,
it ails you,
it dismantles your heart,
it bedevils you.
a grudge lusts for revenge,
it precludes all hopes of perfect zest
and broils you with incessant anger.
it rearranges your fragile into a stone,
the animosity turns you into an inanimate creature
blimey! even that smile is a total guise!
but what do you do
when you discover that the person
you hold dear harbours a grudge against you?
i don't want to be a stone
so i beg you
can't we let there be peace?
