Be Relieved


Be relieved.
At least those criticisms,
Once directed to you...
Will not be as severe.
And...
You can become more antagonizing,
Than ever before.
But...
With less scrutiny face,
To defend against.

You are in a greater position now,
Than you were before.

Be relieved.
At least those criticisms,
Once directed to you...
Will not be as severe.
