one day

one day…
i’ll stop being considerate.
i’ll stop caring.
i’ll stop believing.
i’ll stop trying.
i’ll stop enduring.

one day…
i’ll be spontaneous.
i’ll be callous.
i’ll be frightening.
i’ll be shocking.

one day…
they’ll be confused.
they’ll be scared.
they’ll be crying.

one day…
i’ll get out of this routine,
because i won’t be able to save myself every time.

and one day
i won’t be strong enough to stop myself.
