Unable to forgive

It gets to be a burden,
when your staying mad at a person for so long.
But theres a deep hole in my heart that doesn't want to fill,
and it restrains me from being merciful.
The anger that stirs in me has been locked away for so long,
its impossible to dismiss it.
How am I expected to forgive,
when I haven't even learned how?
A grudge is powerful,and easy to grasp,
I don't want to try to forgive
because that would mean letting go of the pain too fast.

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I have trouble forgiving people, especially when I feel that they aren't sorry for what they did to me. I have been angry about so many things for too long, that its hard to just let it all go.
