I ONCE believed …

I ONCE believed in hurting myself 

Because it was bad to enjoy myself

When others were hurting each other.

I ONCE believed in feeling sad

Because it was wrong to feel happy

When others were hurting each other.

I ONCE believed in seeing hate

And repeating the truth about the violence others did to me

When others were hurting each other.

AND I ONCE believed this was my destiny:

The fate of inevitable pain and strain and tainted culpability

When others were hurting each other.

BUT NOW I see a different sight:

Others have no right, it is clear,

To stop me from being good to me.

AND NOW I am to be a different writer:

Now I shall make yous become

All the people who love each other.
