Revenge Is Not the Answer – Letter to the Editor

Revenge Is Not the Answer

Gandhi once said
An eye for an eye
Will leave both men blind
You may think
That’s fine
I can live with that

No, you can’t


Your conscious won’t let you
It will gnaw at you
Nag at you, and drag you down
Till one day you wake up shouting
Like a man about to drown

All right! I hear you!
I hear you, loud and clear!

What’s done is done

Revenge, sweet as it may sound,
Does not change a single thing
Sing a song to honor the dead
Let us leave the past in the past

Without forgiveness
The vicious cycle
Will never end
Peace will never – ever reign over our land.
