"The Deed" by Koi Swartz
Updated: May 19, 2022
It was a simple deed. Not much more
The deed was small, not much
A simple instruction, a small task
Why did he feel guilty
Guilt wasn’t an option, it was a make believe feeling
He can’t back down. He’s scared
He felt like burning in his chest
He wanted to impress his fellow friend
He cannot fail.
It was his only friend
It was one deed
