I.

  I write to you in the language of my betrayal

  To address your promise of

  Belonging.

  I wanted you to know,

  I don't belong here either.

  But maybe--

  It's a little more bearable.

  I can't find myself

  In your stripes anymore.

  My star nowhere to be seen.

II.

  I write to you in the language of my exclusion

  To address your promise of

  Freedom.

  But enough

  of that tired ol' pledge.

III.

  I write to you in the language of your stagnation

  To address my surging grief.

  I'll set fire to this homeland,

  Lay myself down in the ash.

  Make destruction my new master

  What I torch, I'll redeem.

  I write to you in the language

  of my betrayal.

Powerful imagry here galen. Is there a context to this? I assume you created it?
