How is it we spend half of our lives
harming and neglecting the ones we love?
And much of the other half
trying to atone for it?
My intuition tells me I’ve been neglecting you
while counseling these dysfunctional families of words
Redemption is difficult, nasty work
but somebody’s got to do it
April is coming to a close
Have you lost weight?
