Maybe I should have had a thicker skin.

That way I wouldn’t have let the hurt in.

But then I wouldn’t have had that poem.

Sometimes the best poems come from the deepest hurts.

But maybe I could have tried forgiveness too.

Maybe I had offended him. I’m not dim

But I am slow.

I should be building bridges. Not walls.

But then I would have had a different poem.

A more upbeat one.
