failed attempt

Today
I tried to be Generous
And Kind
And Good
Just
Like you want me to.


Today I tried to leave
my jealousy aside
And to be happy
for you
next to you.

Baby
I’m sorry
I took my gift
back.
But that’s
just
me.

............................

Today I tried
to be Generous
And Kind
And Good
I only succeeded
In being
honest.
