from the archives: biting wolves

it is hard to be human
among silent jackals
tough to be fair
as apathy erodes your mind
it's difficult to fight for what is good
when enmity and indifference are rewarded
but to live you simply grit your teeth
and endure
each bite.

I am not a fan of Haiku, really. I see the value in it because when it's done correctly it shines like small, brilliant gems. I have no doubt that my issue lies in my natural verbosity so it's natural that I under-appreciate brevity lmao.

You have countered all that nicely since I enjoy your work, this piece in particular.
