I am the Resistance

I am the resistance

If the world delivers pain

The terms of my shortcomings

Calls me out by name

I am the resistance

Self-perpetuating

A walk of shame

I find myself Inducted

Into my own hall of fame

I am the resistance

the levity about to unfold

A comedy of errors

In this path of which I hold

I am the resistance

Do I double-down or do I turn away?

Do I conflate them both?

Who’s to say?

I am in resistance

If I do not apply what I learn

Not to ignore

Able to discern

I am in resistance
