At 14

you know
beyond belief
that everything
you have been taught
told to be truth
is a lie
all
you hold
has
no weight
and
no evidence
in the world
can convince you otherwise
at 41
you have the weight
the evidence
but still
nobody
is listening
you could shout
from the top
of a lofty hill
a low holding wall
the truth you know
to be so
giving details
into the slanting sun
& they will
laugh right at you
titter even
& walk on by
clinging tight
to the big lie
