Just Be Kind
I know why you did what you did.
I understand that you wanted to protect me,
I love you, and I always will, but—
–No, listen to me—
You were wrong.
You tried to do the right thing
Right up until the end
And then you gave up.
You chose me over the right thing.
You did this.
All of you did this.
For centuries, you’ve perpetuated this cycle.
You’ve used family, friends, religion, morality as an excuse to cause more pain.
I’m not giving up on her. I will never give up on her. So you can fight me for my body, you can fight each other and kill each other and just keep destroying or, for once, you can forget about your “morality” and “reasons” and just be kind to the person next to you.
Just be kind.
