The Bad Influence

My Home’s A Stranger To Me

I don’t recognize my home.

It feels like a fortress.

We are locked inside,

staring out at an uncertain world.

When we venture out,

we count the moments until we’re back,

safely behind these walls,




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
