Bitterness and resentment.

What an insidious hidden root.

You pollute my well.

You poison my water.


You sneak in and destroy my garden.

You plant tares amongst my wheat.

You are a highway robber, waylaying, defrauding, pillaging me.

You rob, hurt, and leave me for dead.


Oh! But I have woken up now.


I see you for what you are.

You will wreak havoc no more in my garden.

I annul the covenant we made in the past.

We are no longer a pair; I dissolve our union.


I want you near no more!


I take back my mind.

I take back my heart.

I take back my life.

I take back my future.


I am free to live again.

I am lighter now.

I have shaken off the heavy cloak of bitterness and resentment.

I am unchained, liberated from my oppressive, cruel slave master.
