sure the self dissipates and hollows
and all dignity is temporary at best
while memory itself will betray you
at every turn

but all the same, if you're lucky,
you'll look back sometimes
across the sweep of time
and discover there was some extraordinary freedom
even in places you once read as trapped and lonely
