Authenticity

To chase an unapproved idea

is not to

fight the hand that fed or bruise the arm that bled

and leave a peaceful sunlit meadow for a barren windswept tundra.

 

To defy a past conviction

is not to

publicly besmirch and vandalize a church

and trade truth and virtue in for shame and treachery.

 

To abandon an externally defiled dream

is to

internalize the slight, validate the spite

and lead an inauthentic borrowed life of slavery.
