its brutalA
to desist revengeB
-
you ache from the frictionC
and burst into a beautiful flameD
-
you forge the finest piece of steelE
that cuts thru every bitter wave that you go thruF
-
but you're notG
defined by your worstH
-
you're not the fire that yearnsI
for retaliation instead you seek to reciprocateJ
-
all the energy that was invested into nurturing you upK
and try to forget how cold and wet they kept you before nowL
-
some daysM
steel cuts itselfN
-
and you bleed from woundsO
that you indirectly inflict upon yourselfN
-
some days you draw too close to the fire for warmthP
reminiscing how the cold used to cage you like a captiveQ
-
and now the heat of the fire like night tales tardily refreshesR
your retentiveness and before you recollect snap you're burnt afreshS
-
then youF
learn again quicklyT
-
how to find peace by the sea waterU
away from the fire canvassing the tides within youF
-
and you find yourself againV
the power within you to find solaceW
-
all by yourself and discipline every dour will thatX
knocks heavily on your door for the exchange of unyielding thoughtsY
-
i never want to revengeB
it burns it hurts like a wound that's supposed to heal but never willZ

Poet's note: This is a sequel to a number of notes, poems and quotes in my personal journal's 'notestoself' series. It is difficult to fight the urge to revenge, given we all are imperfect beings, but I think we should always do– fight to avoid revenge. It's good for our health, to make a habit to forgive, even the unaccounted and unforgivable.
