Be like them, they say or be down
Straw grabbing, hypocrisy, expectations abound
Stumble, left behind on the bandwagon ride
These times, there’s no place to hide
No place to hide only the slide
Landing in the basket of the few
Rejected battered and caked in mildew
Hope in struggles that bring people together
Hope for the like-minds in rejection of the norm
Hope in the lonely gauntlet of adders
For whatever it is, we hope
Struggles, Sweetness, Joy, Loss even as we grope.
We live we learn
