Toxic

It’s so easy to say that

This or that person is toxic.

It’s so easy to see the negativity in others

So easy to push them away.


But we don’t see the negativity in ourselves

Our brains leaking out a constant flow of our own poison

That’s absorbed by our cells

And slowly corrodes our soul.

There is no antidote,

No easing of the pain.

All we can do

Is let it seep through our veins

Manage its symptoms

And hope the damage isn’t permanent.
