When Her Activism Goes Blind~ for K.N.

Trauma  brings on the fervor of belief
Insidious virus of an ideal
Looking over her shoulder
Hiding her core, unbearable shyness
The condition of shame
Driven to do the good that will bring her 
Some paltry imitation of Fatherly love
Her reward for the stalwart habit of turning away 
From genuine touch 

Preferring the practice 
Of cunning and slippery skills
Masked betrayals that bring glory
Among the cheering tribe 
Riding the momentum of  One True Cause
Powering the hopeful back and forths across
A Common  human fear :
The terror of not belonging.

  1. I read this backwards in lines and it also reads well, so coherent if disturbing.
