Betrayal

Say it to the whole world

A litany, a laundry list

of all things wrong with me

all things I did wrong

say it to the whole world

I don’t have the fight in me

I just want to be gone

I just want to vanish

I just want to burrow a hole in the earth

and hide there until it is all gone.

I don’t have the fight in me

I am no leader

I am just a pretender

Fight or flight

is not even a choice.

I always flee at the first smell of conflict

I am no leader

I am just a pretender

until pretend  I no longer can.
