Release

So many emotions to try and sort out
Those you’ve loved left you hanging in doubt
Refusing to hear you nor your lamented shouts
Leaving your thoughts within and your emotions without

Pity*

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.
