A few thoughts

I learn what’s good
when confronted with evil
I’m passed off as
just okay
or a has-been
who could have done better

parameters change
with environment
how good or bad
I really am?

a survival strategy
counts as crime
my right to exist
circumvented by law

Does intent count
or the damage?
my upbringing
or education
or just the stinging slap
after doing something?

reborn in non-human bodies
I may commit heinous acts
and pass off
without being judged
or punished
