shamed within an unashamed pettiness.

 

I am petty  
i wish ill will
there are times, †
that i long for it  
yearning in my loathsomeness †
i wish i didn't feel this  
if only i was a better person †
but ~ there's only so much  
of "being the bigger person" †
that someone can take  
how much is too much  
when you can't remove yourself  
from the situation? †
when, in the light of actual truth  
it's justified and cathartic  
a justification of deed and integrity †
yet, the value of enlightenment †
is to let it all go, †
i know this  
but †
how much...  


... before I lose myself completely? †
