tear down

Written by: danielle horan

we tear down others 
never ourselves 
we point the fingers and do the blaming 
never look at our reflection 
       or open our hands 
we just partake in the downfall
never bother to heal the wound 
     instead we walk by 
with crudest instrument 
        blunt words 
        hammering insults
we continue to tear down others 
but we never check ourselves
