A dirty coat.

I’m always out
as your knocking
because I’m on a search
and I’ve always valued answers
more than partial truths
and half thoughts.
I want to find it all
where we started
us as in the entire species of humanity
and you
you stand anchored
When I open
you sigh of disinterest
you want me
you don’t want the world
you don’t want the political views
of our society
you don’t want the words
of movements
hitting your ears
simply you want me.
In our home
you want the hostility
to be checked at the door
like a dirty coat
covered in the germs of the outsiders
and often
I battle with the coat
trying to take it off
and letting it all go
no matter how often I clean it
the grime holds on.

Thanks for reading.
