The Futility of Revenge

That propels me forward today
REVENGE that could make me say

I did it and did in style
Repercussions traversing mile

Bloated ego soars up high
But, smile transforms into a sigh

For, revenge is poison in heart
tears mind and soul apart

Feeds ego unnecessarily
rotten mind thinks involuntarily

...thoughts futile ...baseless
empty darkness without solace

The idea of revenge can burn
inside one's belly and in turn

create chaos on a bright sunny day
destroying all that comes in way

Life goes on - revenge or none
we seek comfort - having won

The victim and slayer both suffer
sands of sorrow bury them deeper!
