Humans.


Humans.
There are three certain sins:
1. Hurting others because you are too afraid to be yourself.
2. Hurting others to help yourself.
3. Hurting yourself to help others.
If you drop something and say sorry,
It does not make it better.
If you clip an angels wings
It will not kill her.
But if you go all the way
There will be nothing at all
Left to say.
-And that means certain death.
No more love,
Emptiness as deep and profound
As the overwhelming heights of greatness.
Cannot be matched
Undone, or rehashed.
