Sudden Rage

IMG_3695
by Cristina Otero

just because
i cried myself to sleep
when i was her age
doesn’t make it okay
for her to

it doesn’t give me an excuse
to spill poison from my disgusting tongue
and send her to bed feeling
broken, hated, scared, alone

just
because that’s what
happened to me
just
because that’s what
i did to myself

doesn’t mean
i should do it to her
doesn’t mean
i should be a reason for her
to do it to herself
