Water-bearer

To care so profoundly
for all things that breathe,
yet to reject so apathetically,
those beings that make you seethe,
these are the burdens
for one so attuned to care.
These are the crosses
for the water one to bear.

  1. I think we do that to cope. There is so much so painfully, obscenely wrong in the world if we didn’t have selective apathy, I think we’d go mad.
