what you are



they are

degrading what you are


your fingers

scrawling frisky gens

scrawling what you are



you are

masking what you are


your goalmouths

suffocating their interests

suffocating what you are


treating you an outsider

treating you a child

mistreating what you are

  2. It’s hard to say I Like this because it’s so bleak, but I can definitely say I understand and sympathize. We are all trapped in our own little bubbles of time and space competing with each other for being who we are. Each other bubble is trying to impose it’s own picture of what they want us to be into our time space… as we are them.

  3. thank you for following my poetry blog. I guess I’ll have to add something to it now and then.

  4. there’s so much passion and frustration, the way you feel when you understand what you can’t change I guess, Beautiful art yours.
