TODAY, IT RAINED
(4/25/18)

I am
not sure
of the significance
of most
social interaction

I do realize
that I am being
judged continually

by those
who see
me

those
who read
about me

on paper

electronically

my intentions
are not known

only
the recollections
representing
my actions

the statistics
describing me
are evident

both of
which
are subject
to interpretation

I have
been covered
in a cloak
of guilt
for the majority
of my life

a raiment
well earned
at times

others
an apparel
mistaken

I have
long since
ceased
to explain
myself

society
will do
what it will
with me

verdicts
shall be
rendered

I shall
not appeal

I have
a higher court
to which
I account

and whether
the sky opens
with sun

or showers

I am loved
the same
