Consequences on the road to revenge

Photo by Daniele Levis Pelusi on Unsplash

I'm trapped on one of life's sickest tracks. Once upon a time they wronged me and now I'm gonna get them back.

I shouldn't chase trouble, but I'm not gonna stay back. I'm on a mission for the big payback.

It feels like they made my life the hardest. Now I seek retaliation and it's leading me to darkness.

It's like I'm taking all the joy from my heart. I wasn't pure, but I didn't have a poisonous heart and now I'm just destroying my heart.

The anger in my heart is killing me. I won't stop until I see justice dealt to my enemy.

The idea of justice makes revenge a bad lie and it's also making me into a bad guy.

But my mind can't rest on the logical page because I have a mind blinded by rage.

I shouldn't go down this road, I should stop today. The anger filling my heart won't let me walk away.

Maybe I should stop, drop and pray for repentance before I continue down this road of vengeance.
