NO MORE TEARS
(8/23/18)

I subtract
any personal
value judgments
of right
or wrong

ethically

morally

legally

to see
simply another
environmental condition
to which
I must
adjust

to which
I must
react

or let
pass

whether or not
intentions
are behind
these occurrences
is not
my concern

I only
deal with
what is manifest
in front
of me

coldly

objectively

this method
saves
my sanity

even though
it costs me
socially

please
judge my
actions
in kind

and we
will get
along fine

just
as long as
you do not
cry
