Why you so nasty?
I asked,

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,
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.
