Gave it up too easily?
Yes, I sure did.
I saw the reports,
heard the commentary,
read the tweets…
My heart is barely a thump,
my soul is barely a whisper,
and my mind is just not worth discussing.
Perhaps it would be of some service to act…
perhaps it would be just
another hopeless romance.
Quitting is a behavior I’m not proud of,
even under the most respectable circumstances.
Numbness, however, has come to control.
When outrage should at least be front and center,
slumber is all I request.
