Bitterness Grows Roots

Actions that leak from bitterness don't lead to healing.

Bitterness is like a thorny ivy; 
it constantly seeks
and reaches
and stretches
and clings.

Words of bitterness don't take the bitter out,
they just give it a way to stretch.

Actions of bitterness don't tear up the root; 
they just give it more soil to cling to.

Bitterness can only be suffocated.
It mustn't be let out.
It mustn't see the light. 
It mustn't be released.
