Don’t give up chocolate for Lent. Give up guilt, give up regret
for what can’t be changed, give up blame. Forgive.
When Easter comes, don’t indulge in those negatives again,
leave them where you tossed them forty days ago. You’ll find yourself
at a crossroad, stones rolled away, your better self resurrected.
