Give Up Resentment



Forgive an expense
Forgive a debt
Forgive an offense
But recall yet

Forgive a bother
Forgive a fret
Forgive a pother
But recall yet

Forgive an outrage
Forgive a threat
Forgive a rampage
But recall yet

Forgive a shamble
Forgive upset
Forgive a gamble
But recall yet

Forgive a dogfight
Forgive a pet
Forgive an affright
But recall yet

Forgive an insult
Forgive regret
Forgive a tumult
But recall yet
