What You Do Next
Forgiveness doesn't cost a cent
nor does it take brute strength.
It's, actually a harder task
to hold a grudge for length.
Most quarrels start as simple things
that words can escalate.
The damage done, with just the tongue,
should not determine fate.
Although it's wrong, emotions strong,
sometimes can take control.
The actions next, revealing best,
the truth within the soul.
