Debt

Because you drank and drove and hit that pole,
I could see again today.
Why did you drink and drive?

Because you drove your children away,
I could find a roof and bread.
Why did you disinherit them?

Because you broke her trust and faith,
I could find a lifelong friend.
Why did you break her heart?

I owe you.
Your children.
Her.
Your pain.
Your sins.
Your guilt.
Your choices.
Your foolishness.

I tremble. I crumble. I falter. I stumble.
Why did you gift me this debt?
