I had been thinking
if you ever got sick.

I had been thinking
if you endured an
indescribable pain.

I had been thinking
if you encountered
sleepless nights
screaming for mercy
for a body that was
slowly decaying.

For you,
it’s substance abuse
but maybe
it’s how they
manage their pain.
And you’re
adding up to
their pile of burden.

When will you see that
multiple realities exist,
not just one
mainstream narrative?

You see
even a guilty man
with all the horrors
he has done
needs not
to be shot dead.

I realized that
hurting, harming
killing people
are so damn easy
when you
cannot feel
anything.
