Alphabe-Thursday-Flash Friday 55: R is for Rebirth

Reflecting,
remembrances 
slowly revealed

Rough, 
ragged,
rancorous,
filled with rage

Reaching back further…
recalling those 
long repressed

Without remorse,
resistance,
or urge to run,
memories are resurrected

Whether real or revised
doesn’t matter, 
really,
for the resentments 
reign,
restrain,
hold me ransom

Relief…
not through retaliation,
but through resolve:
recognizing,
releasing,
refusing
bondage’s grip

Rebirth

When you come out the other end you are better for it if you can squelch those resentments, rages, retaliations
