Watching the Ripples Radiate.
Author: marshalg

Chapter 121



Green envy is encapsulated

Readied for display,

When higher thought engages

The reptilian tongue to say

Cutting words of hurtful-ness

The slashing at the knees,

Destruction of trust’s tenderness

Forever …if you please!


You can’t forget betrayal,

You cannot wipe the stain,

Revulsion festers deep inside

And surfaces as pain.


Resist the urge to cry my girl

Depart for pastures green,

Compose the revelation

That the insults are unseen.


Compose the revelation,

Discern the thought today

That redemption’s only passage

Is to turn and walk away.
