Glaxo Kline A Bluebird


Evil


I am evil because I love too much,
wanting those I love to keep in touch;

I am evil that I dare to care,
evil that I'm always 'there';

evil. I invite insult;
evil; I deserve the hurt.

I am evil that I wish to protect;
I am evil that I cannot neglect

the needs, or those I mis-perceive
in those who have no need, it seems.

I am evil that I wish to say
how much I love someone today.

I am evil if I self-protect
with reason, tears or intellect.

I am evil if I should expect
love back; for I deserve neglect.

I am evil that I may press on;
for evil people should be gone.

    Yes you are right.You think almost the way I think of myself.
    Only difference is that I could not write this poem for you.
