I Could - Poem by Frankie Bragg

I could turn bitter
and wither up and die
But what would be the purpose and why?

I could be evil and return an eye for an eye
I could hate you
giving you power over me
But you are not worth my soul in eternal damnation
and that's no lie.

I could turn my back on you
and leave you for dead.
But I understand that a life jacket thrown
gives someone hope, then seeing bubbles
from their last breath dangling over their head.

I could do alot of things
But would that make it right?
Lucky for you I chose to walk out of darkness into light.
What? ! , you asked could our relationship be the same
IT COULD
But since you left
I have changed
So, no thanks God Bless.

As I wave to you goodbye
I turn my signal light on to change lanes
With you in my rear view mirror getting dimmer
Riding off into the sunset with my head, held high.
