Standards (a poem)

Sick since yesterday, but still writing…

The question is not
whether it is good
but whether it is honest

I don’t believe
the truth will set me free
but it may help me
be at peace with the reasons
and the realities I face

If I can live with myself
and the choices I make
success in the usual sense of the word
is irrelevant
