Magnetic North

This moral compass
needs magnetising
Always pointing north
and never waning in strength

It tires me –
this pervasive sense of injustice
It hollows me out
’till I can take no more
And I stand standing for truth
when all around are just ghosts

I can stand no more
and desire
a recalibration of my own declination
to no longer know truth
for I can bear it no longer.
