We have time for everything
Sleep, run back and forth,
regret we made a mistake and err again
judge others and absolve ourselves,
we have time to read and write,
edit what we wrote, regret what we wrote,
we have time to make projects and never follow through
we have time to dwell in illusions and stir through
their ashes much later.
We have time for ambitions and diseases,
to blame destiny and details,
we have time to look at the clouds, at the ads, or
some accident, we have time
to chase away our questions, postpone our answers, we
to crush a dream and reinvent it, we have time to make
to lose them, we have time to take lessons and forget
soon after, we have time to receive gifts and not
understand them. We have time for everything.
No time, though, for a little tenderness.
When we’re about to do that, too, we die.

Where to draw a line between being nice, not hurting
people, and standing up for your beliefs.

So I can be loved.
