Poem: Do Not Die Bitter


I believe sometimes

God speaks to us in our dreams

My dream was a terrible dream

A dream where I was in the arms of a

Loved one

Gasping for air,

Tears running like waterfalls

Down from my eyes

Because in my mind I know I am not ready to die


This loved one was holding me tight

that dark night in his arms

I felt safe, but too scared to relax

The end was near and I knew it

I tell him as I begin to lose every ounce of breath from my body

But death did not hit me in that moment, not just yet


As the time passes everything moves slow

But death appears to come so fast

I am bleeding bad,

holes all over body for every human I chose not to forgive

but then there was the biggest whole of them all

the one that was an inch away from my heart

that hole was called bitterness

and I look at my loved one in the eyes

And say, “Tell her I forgive…”


Then I die right there in my loved one’s arms

My loved one kisses me goodbye

But his mind is confused, and his heart is torn

Filled with various emotions you could hear the distress in his

Cries as he says, “Why?”

(She could not let it go)

He screams again, “Why?”

(She could not move past it)

This time again with his face drenched with tears, “Why?”

(She would not allow herself to heal)


He leaves his loved one, knowing there was nothing

He could do to remove the pain, his love could not cover up or makeup for

The deep-rooted issues of her heart


Do not die bitter




Definitions & Scripture Suggestions


“A strong feeling that makes you want to hurt someone or be unpleasant because of something unfair or unkind that has happened”

(Read-Hebrews 10:30 , Ephesians 4:26



“Someone who is bitter is angry and unhappy because they cannot forget bad things that happened in the past”

(Read Ephesians 4:31-32 )

Meditate on the following scripture: Hebrews 12:14-15 NIV

This poem was an actual dream I had recently, and I wanted to share it with you. To illustrate how serious unforgiveness and bitterness are. These are two things that can send people to hell. When it comes to love and hating others there is no gray area. You either love them or you hate them. Sometimes you can sit and work things out with others and sometimes there is no opportunity to do that. Maybe the other person does not want to talk about it, too triggered or wants nothing to do with you, maybe they already passed away, maybe the situation is too fresh, maybe you must get a third person involved to see both sides. The goal is not to change how the other person feels or justify your actions but to hear each other out and decide to accept what happen as a lesson and move past the experience that caused tension and confusion. If our emotions are not managed and controlled, they can get us into a lot of trouble.

You may not get the outcome you want, you may never get an apology, but you do need to be obedient when your father is tugging you to make efforts to eliminate the anger, unforgiveness and bitterness in your heart. When you do not listen to God’s spirit on the inside of you then you will always learn the hard way. If you do things in your own strength, “Your way” you will never receive the healing you desperately need. The soft but still voice that is telling you to do something you know you don’t want to do but need to do is God. I pray you talk to God now and ask him to show you where bitterness resides in your heart and figure out how it got there. Work with your father to discover what you can do today to get rid of it completely in your heart and your life. I highly suggest you start trusting your father and follow his lead because his plans are never to harm you.

Do not die bitter.

This message is not for everyone, but it is for someone.


I thank you Jesus for giving me insight to give my readers nourishment for their mind, body and soul. Rest kings and queens of the most high, soaking in the fact that God’s got us! You are Destined For Greater!
