Graham's blog: politics, poetry, and introspection

Leaving hibernation

I think it's time to find myself again
Find a face that I like
Find a fight that I can win
And fight to win

I've lain vast voids around me
Planes of protection
Building space between disdain
And utter contempt

I'm hiding from fear, and love
I'm hiding from you
Withdrawn from the fray
And burrowed away

I'd dared to hope, and smile
At my optimism, at your ideals
Producing a projection
And being issued a correction

I think I know now, I understand
The isolation doesn't help me know
Anything more about myself
Nor aid my health

I've been learning while sleeping
I need to build again
Out in the open, in the light
And in plain sight
