Prison Cell

Wed, 03/13/2019 - 13:25 -- kh156

about half of the poems for this contest seems to be about stage fright

and about how they overcame it with all their might

so should i add my own

or just be one of the clones

 

but im afraid 

afraid of being different

as i just hide in the shade

and hope to just be equivalent

as i stand alone i start to think

is this truly what i seek?

 

No, it's not. 

Now I will run out of my prison cell. 

I will yell that I am undeniable myself. 

 

I will break from the social constructs that have always confined me

because in the end, I am the one who decides whether I will listen to society

or not.

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
