When I Helped
Alexandra Scibilia, '17

You asked me for a hand 
And I agreed, although I really 
Didn't have the time.
You asked me to be your eyes, 
To see what you could not, 
But I couldn't, because
How can I tell you the way I see the world?
I don't want to have that influence
Over you, but you insisted.
So I did, and I fear the way 
I changed you.
