Agreements made, contracts signed, hiding somewhere in the mind.
Biting, stinging, all untold, assisting, leading, young and old.
Definitions undefined, long held beliefs direct our lives.
Imprinted values, mainstream norms, correct intentions, one way we forge.
Spoon full by tiny, briny, sweet, horrible, joyful spoon full we eat.
Swallowed down, without a sound, roots entwined, our souls they bound.
Sudden troubles, tracks once fine, trouble looks you in the eye.
Ill illusions and distractions, stalemate, static and inaction
Acts of ill production, loss of will and gumption, telling days all amaze,
Bewilder with assumption.
Now I Wonder, on the line, from just which point am I defined?
Appalled, now called to recognition, so much soapbox talk I’ve listened.
Within my closet, I now route, to find my own hat, find my suit.
Trying, dying, meet demands, pulled no more, be who I am.
