Why you so nasty?
I asked,
kindly.

Why this bitterness?
I probed.

It has eaten away at you,
It has contaminated you.

Why you hate?
I nudged.

Why this anger?
I questioned.

It spreads like a toxin,
Then
There it feeds on you.

Nurture goodness
Of the heart,
Cultivate happiness
Of the mind.
Allow yourself
To be,
Set yourself free.

Let this negativity go,
Let it all go,
I remind myself tonight.
