Measurement

Measurement

It’s hard to say

how much I care

or how little

which is why

I’ve decided to let silence

be the weight

that will be measured

against forgiveness

and when one of them

tips the scale of need

I’ll know

which burden

to unshackle

and which must be lifted

again into

the perfection of

a temporary balance.
