Throwing Away The Key

Strip away your relationships
One by one
Friend by friend by friend
By lover by parent by child
Until all that is left
Is a broken soul
Alone.

Then, when you understand
And only then
Equipped with the necessary wisdom
Are you at any kind of liberty
To judge
The desperate actions
Of another.
