your anger is not mine

I don't choose to have enemies
Your anger isn't my business
Until you set it in front of me
Even then, I don't have to play tit for tat
I can decide not to engage
I can endeavor not to react
Maybe that means I'm not tough
Because I won't play your game of dirty
I'm like my sweet and kind stuff
I see that anger is a chunky pill
It'll weigh me down if I ingest it
And I don't need it to feel full.
