I Won

Whether they realize it or not

low expectations for others
learning to mistrust
from a very young age
mommy issues
by the book
except without the rage
where did the anger go
it was drowned out by ink
suffocated in its own filth
I didn’t need it
a dormant volcano
on stilts, trying to avoid the fall
how ridiculous
selling flowers now looks appealing
I don’t mind being broke
having less feels luxurious
less to lose…
