Revenge

I was recently asked to write a poem about Revenge. However, it's no longer a word in my vocabulary. I don't subscribe to vengeance. I would rather put love into the world and let what comes to me, fuel me. Making an exercise of anger, judgment, rage is empty and negative. Sure, we all have our momentary fantasies or times of venting, but I don't waste any time or emotion actually plotting, let alone enacting revenge. If someone wishes me ill or speaks ill of me, I send love back to them. I seek out community, not competition. I work together with others, not against them.
"I forgive you. I am sorry. I love you. I thank you." is the Ho Ľoponopono prayer of forgiveness and reconciliation. It changes the energy around someone or a situation, repeating it each time they come to mind. For those that are unable to perpetuate an atmosphere of love, I say this prayer, and hold out my hand. There is another way.


Revenge is not in my heart
I move on, move forward, with the truth
I leave behind your dark cloud
The soot of burned bridges blinds you
Surrounded in anger, jealousy and fear
Fueling you like gasoline
Veiling what can be
Walking away
Feeling the heat of the fire behind me
It doesn't touch me
You are the only one getting burned
I wish you peace, love and that you find happiness
Pleasure me with your pulse in my hands
Holding it, leaving vengeance behind
