Caring About Ourselves

How easy it would be. To

turn and walk away.     The world

                                           would forgive me

but you would not.

 

 

How easy it would be. To

walk the lighted path.   No muck

to step into

or wash away sins.

 

 

How easy it would be. To

cast it all aside.               No one

to answer to

or have blameful eyes.

 

 

How easy it would be. Having

a heart of stone.              Weighted down

drowning slowly in

currents of my insanity.

 

 

How easy it would be. Becoming

what I most hate.            Smiling maniacally

I don’t think

anyone would know the difference.
