Native

I do worry

Sometimes

That were I to rid myself

Of my depression

I would be cutting away

A part of me

 

For surely these feelings

Existed

Inside of me from the beginning

A disease, yes

But invasive, no

 

Is it right to kill

A native species

Even when it longs to destroy its home?
