summary judgment

love is free but hate is work
growth is peace but stagnation, painful

i’ve heard all of this before
you want me to reach stars with my endeavor

you sing medieval songs of God and man
yet here i sit beyond categorization

except the labels i attach to me
which are so many, no one now can see
that anyone was ever here at all
a rebel without cause, or hope,
or clue
