In The Name of Innocence

Good people suffer,

Good people are wrongly accussed.

Some cruel people get power

Some step on the bodies of innocence,

To get into higher ranks,

Some because it’s easier,

Some don’t hear the necks snap

As they sincerely go about their work.

We can easily see the mistakes looking back,

We know about hindsight,

Many innocent people are freed

Without so much as an IOU.

But not all survive.

And I can’t help but wonder,

How many more losses,

Would it take to cross the line?

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
