Sometimes it's hard
to be sympathetic
Even when the person is deserving
Sometimes it
(the sympathy)
just isn't there.

Sometimes it's hard
Week in
Week out
to be kind.
A flicker
quick stab of cruelty
breaking through
(quickly hidden)

You don't always get to choose
who looks up to you.
You look down one day
and there are people sheltering
under your wings
with their mouths open

So you never fly
far from the nest.

do you
forget how?
