Disparity Despair

Sometimes my friends say things

That depress me

Not because they are mean

But because what they said

Shows me that they both

Don’t understand what I’ve been through—

And probably can’t.

I know everyone feels these sorts of pains

But as someone who was

Raised by cortisol and had their whole

Body and endocrine system changed irreversibly

Their perspective will never measure up

I am alone in this

I have always been

I know that’s how everyone feels but

For me each time I talk to someone

No matter how close we are

I often feel alienated

Just by the disparity of our experiences
