For The Self I Weep


And tears fall
I weep for self
for the impossible to be known
for the impossible outside

Inside I weep
for the outside
that finds refusal
that finds spurning
that searches and finds not

Kept inside
for the sake of appearance
for the sake of money
for the sake of life with other

A me not I is seen
I weep

To be seen
to be allowed
to be known
for these self cries

And tears fall

the me I am sits
and waits
and weeps
