I will not. 
I refuse to let it go.
The betrayal was far beyond
any goodness I could show.

No I won’t!
Forgiving is too much!
I would rather eat burning coals
than be sweet and nice and such.

But I was –
You erased my every wrong
Granting me forgiveness
Turning sin to song

So I won’t.
I will let go as I ought
I choose each day to cleanse the wound
Fester I will not.
