solace

my shadow in front of me
and when it is behind me too
it is a shallow reflection of myself on this earth
affirmation that I exist even when I feel erased
by people who care for me, supposedly

truth, plainly and openly
I’ll take any offering
so rare indeed
but even a morsel
fuels my empty soul

my own mind’s chatter
fighting for what matters
even in the wake of corruption
the desire to make right what is wrong

Lived long enough to know
there’s not much solace in a cease
so I go on with hope not so much gone
