When I hear you say this
I still get the urge
To Snap.

I hold back.

Now, I know better.

You command because
That was the way you learned.

You commanded yourself.

You had to command yourself because
You refused to be commanded by others.

You had to command yourself because
No one tried to inspire you
In a manner that was inspiring.

You were inspired by those
Who commanded themselves.

You commanded because
We refused to be commanded.

You tried to inspire
In a manner that was not inspiring.

“Read this.”

When I hear you say this
I get the urge
To Snap.

I hold back.

I may
weep
rage
in Silence.

But
I will
Read That.

For now
I know
Better.

“Read this.”

You rarely say that.
Now, you know better.

Now we know better.

Love is Suffering.
And Love Ends Suffering.
