Pity is a selfish emotion.
Who does it help as it sways like the ocean?
We hang on to it like it’s going to help;
All it does is drag us to the bottom like getting caught in kelp.

This is so true, whether it’s self pity or pity for others. Well poemed, Michael. Thank you!
It can be a trap. Thanks for the visit and the comments.
Exactly–it’s just like being caught in kelp! Yikes!
Scary times for a worthless emotion.
