the better man

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

when in shock of past and presence

when in doubt of reason an essence

when nothings's good - no word said, nor action done

when all love, hope and trust is gone

when you cannot keep going like you should

when you want to run and you would

hide in dark and be invisible

just say the simple, soft unsayable.

Say sorry for my responsibility in this

Sorry, for my incapability that is

human but hurtful

and an apology seems dull.

so go next step and take action

change, grow and be the better man with satisfaction

Thank you for writing about your insight in such a considered way... always a feat in a language that is not your 'mother tongue'.
