 Getting Out Of My Own Way


How could you do that?

Take them away from their home?

How can you justify?

Taking them from the one man
   that will love them unconditionally?

It makes perfect sense

That you were afraid of us

It stands no test of logic

To take them away from me
   when I am finally getting well.

How can you be so selfish?

When I am ready to be selfless

How can you hurt us to save yourself?

While you say that was my biggest fault

Does it play out evenly then?

You with them and
   me without?
