The Cycle

Thursday, November 5

What is the most important lesson you learned as a child, and who taught it to you?

———

“Everyone will hurt you. But you being hurt does not justify hurting others in return.”

You do not have to tell me
About the pain, the hurt, the lies
I know all about these things
I feel it too, I empathize

I know his hands reach out
In anger he marks your face
I know the pain, the bruises
The marks that makeup can’t erase

You do not have to show me
All the lies she sent your way
Every single message
On your phone, throughout the day

You have no need to make me hear
All the words that taunt and mock
I feel the blows they throw your way
The surprise, the pain, the shock

You do not need to give it back
And respond to me in kind
The cycle must be broken —
The shackles in your mind

And though they break you everyday
You must not break me in return
I’m not the one who’s hurting here
I’m not the one who’ll burn.
