Apathy

Composed 1/10/14
Description: n/a

I see others succeed
And I think
That could have been me
If I tried

But I didn’t

And
It’s too late now
Or did it even matter?

I don’t care
But was that first
Or a shield
To guard my pride?

  1. This is great, especially that last stanza. I’ve never read a poem that’s dug into a moment of self awareness and made sense of it so clearly. You should have heard me clap when I finished reading it.
