You Thought Of My Kindness As Being Weak - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When you chose me to be that someone
You could defeat and ruin easily...
I made every attempt to ignore you.

I even approached you to reconsider,
That which you valued in your life.
You thought of my kindness as being weak.
You thought of my respect shown to you,
A wish to have it removed to see it beaten.

Now you are loudly declaring I am the reason,
For your failures?
I am the reason why the hole you dug for yourself,
Is so deep you can not get out of it?

Look around you.
Even those you once had convinced,
I was a threat...
Are doing their best to keep you from being rescued.
