I Don’t Think Of Myself As A Heroic Loner

. . . I’m not a loner.
I’m not heroic.
When I think about myself at all,
I fluctuate between
grandiosity and a despairing,
withering self-loathing.
Even the label “survivor”
is too dramatic
a descriptor.
I am . . .
I am not . . .
And too soon I’ll be neither of those.
And sorry to be the one
to tell you,
but same goes for you.
