Hidden Behind Normalcy


Hidden Behind Normalcy

By: Mikala Turner


Opportunities run short,

 judgement runs long.

Potenial never seen

 just hidden behind niches.


In the belt of religion,

 I am an outcast in my mind.

I am afraid,

 afraid that if I believe in options,

that this belief will kill me.


I do not believe what these people believe!

I do not believe what this book they push at me says!


I hide behind the cloud of normalcy,

 only to protect myself and my mind.
