It is often said
That the eternal quest
Should be to do the right thing.
What is that, I've wondered?
Ask one man, and he'll tell you.
Ask Five, and they'll argue betwixt themselves.
I suppose the right thing, Much like beauty
Is in the eye of the beholder.
Was it the right thing to continue
Through a marriage that was clearly unhealthy
If for the sake of avoiding sorrow?
Was it the right thing for her to voice her mind
And give credence to the black hole that shattered my heart?
Perhaps it was only within the right thing
In the eye of this beholder that can make us understand the
Lessons of life we must learn.
To that end, Thank you for doing the right thing
And shattering my heart.
