I’m not that kind

 

 

I'm not that kind (2).png

You said I was kind

As I gave him a few coins on the way to lunch.

You said I was generous

Because I bought him coffee on a cold day.

But I’m not that kind.

I’m just on a thin ledge between his world and mine

Too aware I could lose it all today

The anxiety and depression could take it all away.

So believe me

That when I give

I also take.

I take away the hope.

That one day if I’m sitting where he is

Shivering in my dark world.

A hand might reach out to me.

And that hand might be yours

But it will also be mine.
