.
Though my speech lacks conviction -
.
Though I feel bereft of moral authority,
.
Though I sense the loss of my idealism
.
Against the fractionation of identity -
.
.
I still find solace in the belief
.
That some of us are simply meant to be alone.
.
.
Perhaps I'm just trying to reconcile
.
The absence of any comforting presence -
.
Perhaps I'm just shaking hands with the thing I fear the most -
.
.
But if the barrel to the rest of my life
.
Is the tunnel I'm forced to stare down,
.
Than I would be a fool to grieve its loneliness
.
And be made a bigger fool yet,
.
.
If I didn't search for anything beautiful in it.
.

Author's Note

Ookpik
The problem with being read, is that it promotes a hesitant pen - conceding what one wants to say against the likelihood of bad reception.
