sympathy

as a child

i would feel bad for things that did not have emotions

such as letters that did not get capitalized

or numbers that were turned negative in a math problem

i had to push such feelings aside to succeed in school

and sometimes i wonder if that was the case with people too

i feel too much for too many

it is often easier to tell myself i don’t care

and push myself away from things

that i tell myself

i shouldn’t care about
