A Good Enneagram 1

I lovingly gaze back on that girl in bangs 
with a twinge of sadness and note of pride
and wonder at whose idea it was to 
smear heavy on her warm insides
the idea of personal responsibility for 
every person's soul whipped with 
the idea of holy passive smallness
landing her in a rush of driven apologetics
of both terrible varieties, all the while 
terrified of moral relativism while its 
masters built a cage of small certainty
around her. 

Why pride, you ask?
Because eventually 
she took 
what she wanted 
and left.
