"BREAKING THE BARRIERS"

By Makenna Kovacs

 

I can feel their eyes burning into the back of my head

I overthink everything i could have possibly done wrong,

constantly blaming myself

but their judgment falls on them,

it shouldn’t mean much to me

We shouldn’t live for the satisfaction of others.

Society is so fucked in that way.

We think we have to fit in a box

when all I want to do is break the barriers keeping me contained.

I seek the oddities in life,

I’m intrigued by what is strange.

Judge me or not,

I refuse to change
