Poems and Poetry

Answer | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Mind racing, head breaking,
Trying to find an answer,
Any answer. Programmed to
Believe in anything but me.
Directed to forego self.

Don’t trust yourself. Keep it to
Yourself. You don’t really matter.
Only we matter. Voices of reason
Tying my hands and muffling my
Being. Not myself.

Mind racing, head breaking.
Trying to find an answer.
My answer, unadulterated.
