Proudly, Wear Each, Your Badge of Courage

Indisposed characterization,
devils faulted, playing a nonsense blame-game,
stripped of their sense of self-respect
in the eye of these, the Beholders

Impaired self-importance, impugned, with
fame called into question, disputed & unclear,
beyond the early years –
solo a no-go overinflated ego,
His part played out in one night
fated, jaded, out of sync –
misgiven over-exposure nipped in the bud,
the dawn just begun

Wearing each, our badge of courage,
my solitary journey has reached Destination
each ‘one’ now a part of the ‘whole’
in sync with ‘The One & Only’ GOD
