None Of My Business

-

"It's NOT FAIR!!!!!"

I heard being shouted

"THE SORROW IS JUST TOO MUCH!!!!!"

It was a woman in distress

Her complexion was pale

__like the moon

She had been shooting up

__for a long time

She banged on a door

And the door did not respond

Now she curls up into a ball

Weepingly

__she cries

And all I can think

__was that I was glad she wasn't mine

She would be far too great

__of a responsibility

I asked, "are you O.K.?

__what's wrong?"

She said "this asshole took my purse!"

A fix is what she wanted

Obviously

I can remember that kind of pain in my life

"Well, maybe he just doesn't want you to use"

"What are you talking about?!"

"I'm not blind

I can see the holes in your arms"

"That's none of your business!"

The door opens

She gets up and goes inside

I never knew what else happened after that

I don't think I reached her that day

I left to my room

I was forced to let it go

And turn it over to my Higher Power

It really isn't any of my business

__it's true

So there's nothing I can do

I did my part

And if she falls apart in life

And if she dies not living right

All I can say is that "I tried"
