My Hand, It Kinda Slipped by Eryn King

Cousin, putting your hands on people is wrong, I know
But see I think you thought that because you’re older,
I wouldn’t hit you back.
You hit me for no reason,
I hit you back as a form of revenge.

“Two wrongs don’t make a right”, my mom said softly
Sure, that’s fine
Except, when I tasted that little bit of blood on my lip
I somehow misplaced that word of advice.
I apologize, I seemed to have lost control
Though, it made me feel as though I’d finally won.
