The Watching

I have watched you over the years…

Slowly steadily losing your humanity.

Hardening to the core in the midst of struggle.

Do you see it in yourself?

The pain and loss, devouring anything resembling compassion; all the while preaching to anyone who will listen to the plight of your righteous victimhood.

Are you alone now?


Now we can begin.

Hold up the mirror…
