wide awake

what is fair?
seeing disappointments
when looking for the good
because my hope for good
was there
even when the balance
was in question-
what is fair?
paranoia breathing thick
from past dispositions
into new territory
to re-live the feelings of loss
by suffocating a positive outlet
for selfish reasons-
patience
allowing time to reveal
because it must reveal
the unmasked
and how close I am
to something unconditional
and secure
to promote growth-
taking a risk
for the benifit of us
in such a way that is fruitful
and healthy
damages aside
with a back-burner pride
a commitment to protect-
it is fair to say
awareness is essential
when it comes to the begginings
when it comes to the closures
the similarities and differences
linked together by knowing
what keeps
and what doesn't
