To wake up with hope and empathy
My mind slow but open
To understand fear
It seems to be an advantage
Rare clarity in a life complex
But somehow it seems out of sync

As I wake I realize that not everyone feels
The way I do in this moment
A pang of guilt, old behavior
The need to fit in
In a place where I am one
Refocus, caffinate, reassess
No, I was right the first time
Fear is fear
And the true enemy
