24 Jul



in others


breaks my skin.


But disappointment

in myself

cuts me

to the bone.

    Shut up Billy Ray Cyrus. You’ve done more than any other man could ever dream of.

      I am not sure why the Billy Ray Cyrus reference, but thank you for your kind words.

    I find the two to be intertwined these days…even if at first I don’t suspect so. I have quickly apologized to others, but rarely have I remembered to apologize to, or attempt to forgive, myself.
