Where I Am

Politely disinterested in nearly everything,
angry and untrue.
Disregarding childhood indoctrination
in search of authenticity.

Outwardly rejecting false judgment of myself.
Inwardly reflecting how it might be true.
Trying to separate the wheat from the chaff,
and finding very little worth keeping
after decades of lies and misrepresentation.

Wishing for support and encouragement
from those closest to me, but finding
criticism, falseness, and sabotage.
I recognize them for what they are,
ignore them and move on.
But not far enough.

It is never far enough.
