Independence Day

I’ve been living life backwards

Searching from the outside-in

Looking to others for the answers

Waiting to be told I can begin

But today I called a meeting

A quorum of my many selves

We voted in a new president

And the Me who won, rebels

We deny that They are right

We oppose what we’ve been told

We’ll listen for the guidance within

And our own truth, we will uphold

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: deny
