Stages

We refute / the truth
We thrive / in resentment
We negotiate / every transaction / every emotion
We live / in despair
We deny / the truth
Keep it / from becoming our truth

We disagree / with the facts
We disapprove / of the statements / of the authorities
We disapprove / of the authorities / in and of themselves
We dissent / without evidence
We oppose / the truth
We refuse / to see / to believe

We repudiate
We wear this as our armor
