without the need
to start over
every damn day.
i wake, tired….

to ask me to
care about others
when so few other

that secret crime
locked inside my head,
that heinous act
committed against me….

for life to be unfair.
literally.
i cannot.
i cannot pull out….

to mean something
in a way

what it would be like
to be the world’s greatest

in myself,
which makes
being myself
living my self….

when i sit
in the hoped-for quiet
of my practice,
only two things
disturb that quiet….

i need to talk about
the people who have
treated me so badly,
and i need to name names.
no one deserves….

i have my story,
and it is my story,
and it is me.
i fear my story,
and i hate my story….

are tired of me
telling them
to shut up.
dreams are not meant….
