it is not that I do not

.

it is not that I do not

wish the world well

or see a future without fear

.

it is not that I am not big enough and ugly enough

to be brave enough to speak out

in the face of adversity

.

nor that I cannot live without

a sense of my own

beauty and love and diversity

.

I have simply become impatient

with this lack of sense of commonality

with this lack of obvious simplicity

.

with too much waste and indulgence

with too much frivolous denial

and too much cynical self reproach

.

for power and integrity

for love and humour and joy

for all that is not negative

.
