Winter Is Coming

RDP Friday – Regret

I should have pushed my way to the front of the line

and held the door open wide for everyone else


I should have laughed harder

 and not answered back

so promptly

when I was spoken to.

I should have


less obedient

less compassionate

I should have been more hateful

more deceitful

I should have  been so much less

so I could have lived more

like the faces that rush by me

and call me friend.

    • Those are dark thoughts, sometimes I have them and then I think- what if the day I chose to be cruel and indifferent I let someone who needed one kind word just one act of humanity and compounded their pain? So I never have pulled the plug. It leaves me to wonder how other people can and what drives them to it.
