I’ve heard it said:
“Without physics and law enforcement
I would be unstoppable.”
You could reverse the flow of blood
back into a body,
shatter the silence
of an object at rest,
undo the hurt they caused you –
but tell me –
would you undo the pain
you’ve inflicted on yourself?
As you unraveled the relativity of time
would you take back the words
you wounded yourself with?
As you gave yourself the right
to your own laws,
would you forgive your own injustices?
Would you at long last
stop this violence against yourself,
and permit yourself
to heal?
Would you let yourself
become invincible?
