It wasn’t the words that were harsh,
But their weight.
Then the dam developed cracks, slowly giving way,
Little water seeping through cracks
So you looked back,
Am I to feel gratified?
I never told you how to live your life,
To have my life under scrutiny,
My ideas, everything I say and do,
To toss it aside
It was enough to drive anyone insane.
To toss the fact aside, as though it were nothing.
For future reference,
General, your tongue, is a powerful weapon.
