BETTER NOT GOOD
(5/5/18)

we begin
to see
a little daylight

some resurrection
from the pathetic
human beings
that we once
were

congratulating
ourselves
for rising
a few rungs
upon the ladder
of absolute
failure

but now
we must understand
that others
still see us
as damaged

as far
from acceptable

as below
normal

we are
frustrated
continually
to be treated
as less
than

our status
however
has been well
self earned

the best
for which
we can hope
some day

is merely
to advance
to the point

where we
are not noticed
at all
