Phases of Consideration

The difference between

sinner and saint

is future and past.

Some people would still

plant a tree

if they knew the world

was ending tomorrow.

Some look to branches

for what is only

found in roots.

You can’t see

through others’ eyes

if you haven’t seen

for yourself

that being eaten alive

while crying

is what life tastes like.

I have lived

to the point

of those tears.
