3/19: Erosion

It happens gradually.

A slow fade from black to gray.

It happens in subtle increments:

one deed leading to another

that it comes as a surprise to you

when you finally realize the magnitude it has reached.



It eats at your conscience-

blunting principles and

eroding convictions

until you no longer think twice

of doing it again.

Why bother? you wonder.

Nobody’s gotten hurt.

Little do you realize that it is yourself that you are hurting.
