Not my place

Published on 7 March 2022 at 20:00

The world is a concession of fear and hope,

And there are many people living who struggle to cope,

I ought to be there for others, I think it is my place to help,

My intentions are pure, to do good and be great,

However, sometimes the outcome is never perceived how I felt.

I began to understand that not everyone has the trait to see how I see and be who I set out to be.

It's not my place to fix a broken world,

To call upon myself as a god,

When I don't have the ability to heal and connect all.

Human strength is to learn that often times the outcome of good, is the execution of evil,

I am nothing but a person trying to be civil, to play fair in a world that is just not that simple.

Just like battles, I must pick and choose my service,

It is not always my place to be the form of escape.
