your power

I’m not responsible for your actions


I have come to understand

no one

forces that hand

you made your own choice

as much as I would have

held your hand in the dark

until the light of morning came

to save you

from yourself

you had decided

and never reached for another hand

that night

I wish your isolation

wouldn’t have meant your desolation

or vice versa

but I know I couldn’t change it

no matter how long I held your hand

no matter how much I listened

someone else

can not change you

only you

have that power

and it’s a grand realization

liberating you

to be and do



I wish you would have known
