It Was Always The Other Way Around 

 

I used to think I could talk to God  

but it was always the other way around.

I used to think I knew better than my brother

but it was always the other way around. 

I used to think I was a victim 

but it was always the other way around. 

I used to think always was an accurate word 

It never was anymore than never. 

I used to think I was afraid of everything 

What if it was always the other way around?

I used to think I could write poetry 

but it was more often the other way around --

until I

 stopped thinking

I thinking I

until      stopped.
