Steal This

Rare is the person
who never professes
to be more than what they are.
Instead we get gussied-up in our dresses,
scouting about for a door...
Or a rung
to hang our star...
Full of pretense and airs,
confused from the start,
to humble our mind;
discombobbled regarding - who stole tarts?!
Never able
or willing to find...
Lying and dying
for what we "believe" in
betraying the core of our hearts...
Is this how we overcompensate?
Making judgments, conditions,
projecting our hate?
If we could stand back
and defy the resonance -
or change the flow of
our ongoing nonsense...

Would it help get us off
that victim-fence?
