Ode to the Dishonorable

Tell me my “friend”
What ails you?
Is it envy of my life?
Shall we switch roles?

I would gladly bestow
All heartache – sorrow
Carried throughout life
In the depths of the abyss

Speak not of the unknown
Instead, peer within mirror
Seeing your vile reflection
This shall not delude me

For I shall never be you
Nor can you ever be me
Able to hold my head high
With no doubt or shame

Death can call upon me
As in this heart – soul
No guilt weighs me down
Can “you” say the same?
