ONE LESS

The sand-line was drawn when no one was there,
Unaware of past transgressions, I still felt it tear.
An absentee tribunal painted my guilt,
Based on perceptions from a limited tilt.

Connections ever-strained, as agreed by the souls,
Prior contracts fulfilled, now spared the tolls.
Solitary effort requires an inward gaze,
Fueling the heart as it suffers the blaze.

Accepting responsibility yet unable to respond,
Breath and Light releases the dismantling bond.
No one is to blame until one chooses that route,
Arriving at neutral produces a new suit.
