"mitsve" - 1/22/2007

I have decided
it is ok
if you fail

I knew you at your peak
so I can say honestly
I was lucky

free will is not easy
we're born
and we struggle

but your pain I'm afraid
ain't no worse
than nobody's

no matter
how hard
I try to pretend

otherwise it would mean
your universe
surpasses

other human
psyches
as fragile

as pure
and I'm sure
that it doesn't

I prayed for you
a long time
it's true

I'll always remember
you as
you were

but if you can't
celebrate
yourself

the way
I've tried so
hard to help you

all I can say
is goodbye
and hope

that this thread
you're hanging by
breaks close

enough to the ground
for you to fall
gently

'cause fear
shows its face
at the greediest

times
