Thrown back.

It troubles me,
How easy it is to condemn
Someone else’s devotion.

To subconsciously claim to
Know much, much more
Than your fellow.

To subtly, in your part,
Hint that you’re right.
I’m not.

That I must listen to you
Yet you close your ears,
Whenever I speak.

Surely, I’m misunderstanding
You whom I’ve known
For years and years.

I must’ve overanalyzed
And you meant no offense,
And that I’m overreacting.

Nevertheless, let me end tonight
With this:
Traditions may shape lives,
However, hear me,
Before you cast me
As the delusional,
More than mere conformity,
This goes way deeper.
