Difficult Education

Thank you for the clarity.
Thank you for the cruelty.
Thank you for your honesty
and being thoughtful enough
to pull no punches.
It must have been awkward
and uncomfortable
for you to deal such violent truths.
I apologize for putting you in that position.

The best reward I can offer
for the discomfort you’ve experienced
is that the knowledge
from this difficult education
will inform my behavior with many others to come
– which might prevent them
from suffering the fate you have.
Hopefully, that is some sort of solace
and will have made it all worth it.

Either way
you needn’t worry
about hearing from me again
just as I think
that I have finally heard enough from you.
