He Wouldn’t Have

He wouldn’t have.

If incense sticks
Could erase his guilt
And words
Could kill his pain

If adulation
Could heal insecurity
And respect
Could command obedience

If taste
Could repulse lust
And experience
Could negate history

He would relive his future
Without consequence

He would not
Have succumbed

  1. This is beautiful. It is certainly enthralling when at a level you talk about some of the many vices and ‘virtues’ of everyone’s and anyone’s day to day life in such a simple language. It is a captivating piece of work 🙂
