Never Treat Others

You think the way you treat people will get you what you want, that if you manipulate them enough your truth will become the only truth. People are not action figures in your life, they don't cease to exist without you there. We, each of us, have a mind and life all our own. I hate the way you talk to people, I swear I will never treat others so despicably. You need to be careful with the way you treat others, because you get what you give. Kindness grows kindness, and if you keep yours all to yourself it will die, like fruit on a vine, it needs sunshine.

I will let them splash upon my windows and clear away the dingy dirt and grime of the recent months. I will let each drop of water take away a bit of sorrow. I will look out with new unhindered eyes to a changed yet familiar world. I will come out into this refreshed world and see the flowers I've been missing. I realize now they hadn't gone forever, it only felt that way when they were hidden from my view.

Simple Math

I'm sure your heart is breaking too, I'm sorry for your bruises. I'll leave a message with the guard at the gates... There was a time I could deliver directly, but the walls are built up so high these days, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to find a way through. I don't love you any less, but I can't count on you anymore.
