pain or brain

Red, white, blue

a child's boo hoo

what makes me move?

a warm summer breeze

the sun, between the trees

what makes me breathe?

the sand between my toes

a sneeze caught in my nose

what makes me squirm?

a culture is dying

babies are crying

what makes me feel?

a gpa

a mark, a grade

what makes me scared?

thighs that won't touch

days without lunch

what makes me beautiful?

family at home

still, I'm alone

what makes me warm?

love, fear, pain

blood, bone brain

what makes me tick?
