tooth for tooth

you will not thrash around
because i told you so
you will not stoop to their level
or take an eye for eye
or tooth for tooth
because it suits you
you will not
pick which
reaction to take
like an outfit, when doing the right thing
is so much harder, constant
and permanent
you will let the pain
stain you on the fingers
feel the choices made
as repercussions
as necessary
as inevitable.
