A circle in a warm room as they share stories, saying
"I can relate to that,"
and "I've been there before."
A self-sufficient bubble,
and what a bubble it is

For when an outsider intrudes, they dismiss
everything that contradicts, everything that disagrees
"Get out! You don't share the same experiences as us!"
repelling the sentences that don't fit their twisted narrative

They can continue enjoying
sheltered space, narrow views,
never seeing the light above
