No Where to Run

I’ve given meaning to all I feel
And to all I see–believing it’s real

The jealousy and greed that I see in you
Is the me I’ve denied—I can no longer hide

I am the needy child and her guilty mother
We are one—there is no other

I am the woman abused and her abuser
Both the perp and accuser

That corrupt Republican I so love to hate
Is just my projection of some shameful trait

And as my world collapses from many to one
The monster is me!  I’ve nowhere to run!

And I’ve nothing to offer that You don’t own
The separation has healed…I was never alone
