Confused

 

and seduced

by own ego

 

too many voices

considered

intently

 

concerns

swung

by favors

 

righteousness

veered by

conditions

 

the sense of

belonging to

fake modesty

 

when the world was over

 

only stillness

remains

as is

 

the sun rises

behind

the heap of dust

the pile of rubbish

 

like a newborn

arrives at your feet

 

Just to be

 

what is the most sacred

unspoken

 

unbowed

and

unapologetic
