"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Let's Not

Let's not
say the thing
we know will wound,
we know will sting.
Let's not
unearth the past,
the old offense,
the sins amassed.
Let's not
have this fight,
who's hurting who,
who's wrong, who's right.
Let's not
attack, defend.
Let it end.
Let it end.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at Poetic Asides to write a poem with the title "Let's _____.")
