Civil Rights / Civil Fights

April 2017

I don't have to put up with your temper anymore

when your mood swings

it hits me hard

but you can never blame the wind.

i'm tired of being passive

submissing to the moment of weakness

that has consumed you.

I wait

patiently for it to blow over

rational or irrational thought

sleep recovers all.

as does a warm mug

and a documentary.

And when it didn't, that's when I knew.
