Already perhaps perceiving
My chauvinistic Luddism
You may wish to disregard
The following advice
But I offer it in kindness and hope

You are whole, you are complete
You need not bear such suffering
When treated poorly
Turn and walk away
Never look back

Right outside that door
There’s something like 4 to 8 billion other people
Depending on your preferences
Who might treat you better
Who might love you like
You want to be loved

In front of you there’s at least a chance
Behind you there’s none
But you’ll miss it
Sitting in the dark
Hurting yourself
Picking the scab
