Maybe it starts with this - like this
on an island in the middle of nowhere I’ve ever been
alone to face judgement of the most frightening and accurate of critics
Mirror-mirror on the wall - I see you true I see you all

When the time arrives you will know
Forced into play and action
by circumstances and history and
camel’s last straws at end of ropes


I suppose at some point I can declare "cured"
given the will and the effort expended
Checks And Balances
moving from good to great

I've lived in the dark places
I've lived in the sunshine
We do what we do and are who we are
the universe, the reflexes, and the instincts guide
