REVERT TO FORM
(7/30/18)

so much
struggle

so much
apparent
progress

only
to have
friends

family

see
the same old
damaged
individual

treat them
in the same
old way

so much so
that we
digress
to the same
defensive postures
of the past

as if
no personal
breakthrough
had been achieved
whatsoever

causing us
to wonder
if any
progress
had ever
been made

all
social evidence
seems obviously
to the contrary

so
in order
to remain
well

some
must remain
alone

healed
by exile
