Holy Father,
It takes two people
to carry a grudge
that is this big.

Help me to lay down
my end.

I know my actions
are my responsibility,
but I need
Your serenity
to see that my actions
can include a refusal
to engage.

Instead of revisiting old hurts
and reliving old wrongs,
let me turn to You
and the Love
and Forgiveness
that You make available
to us all.
