the downside of having a conscience

I told myself I would not be that girl

Perhaps I’d read him wrong, I’d like to think so

I forget so few are honest or loyal

I could be a freak for these very things

And I lament how none of it seems to ever pay off

There are a great many things I’d like to do….

But my heart will not allow it.

  1. You have been posting one very good poem after another recently–a tremendous, “quit your day job” productivity I find both humbling and inspiring. As always, thanks for sharing.
