Enough


Every passing second,
A chance for mistake,
Overwhelming sense of dread,
For what must be said,
Sooner or later,
What will be said,
May destroy you,
But there's no other way,
I wish there was,
Can't leave it as it is,
Can't risk that,

They ask,
What's more important? ,
One life or the safety of many? ,
Destroying a life,
Taking away freedom,
For something that is,
Through no fault of his own,
Or risking the lives of everyone around him,
Endangering those you care about,
And knowing the unthinkable is possible,
Waiting for that to happen,
Praying to God for forgiveness if it does,
Because you could not say what you should,
Doing all that you can,
Without destroying a life,
Is not enough,
So I pray to God that he will forgive me,
For destroying his life

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
