‘burdens of ignorance’

it’s the way it is
i get it
i’m the black sheep
and no one believes
in a single thing i do.

yet somehow i shoulder
the burdens of ignorance;
there’s no convincing the unfaithful.

only now the spade i carry
will dig the graves
of every one lost to me
a long time ago.

  1. Excellent.

    A toast to all the black sheeps and everyone who doubts them.
