What I Didn’t Do

I Didn’t climb the forest to see what was ahead of me

Push the ground to make sure everything was solid.

Head towards the easiest target I could find

Lose myself and integrity in my loss.

Steal birds from their nests to test frailty

Seize the moment, at exactly the wrong time

Find myself lost, then claim it to be so.


I didn’t crush what I could of my past

To make my future pay for it,

I lived there for years

Uncertain as to what was going to become of me.

I didn’t waver in my inability to chase peace

Or wonder what the cost off all that would be.


What I didn’t do was sit around

Whether I was damaging


Or healing.
