2020-10-05 – Arms Crossed

is it wrong to hold hope
while others choke?

is it fair to weigh down
the hull of someone
else’s boat when
i can’t row?

is it ok to speak when
not spoken to
first?

is it wise for me
to keep on
eating

to quench
a deeper thirst

++++

fine, if you insist
i’ll spill it
all..

but you
first.
