I am a world changer

watch as tectonic plates

move at my fucking request

I am a whole person

and I am the world, the

world is me.

My screams make

every animal awake. I

wake up and the flowers

bloom. All my belief

is in 5 year old

daydreamers and love

is reserved for girls finding

their directions. I make

evolution happen. I am

unapologetic

I am the melody in every

song

(that can't be taken from me)

Thunder pounds in my ears AND

I romance with shooting stars.

Cultures strive and die within me

I am an aging building

filled with cardboard boxes

I am tears on a teenager's cheeks

I am the first bite into

fresh fruit

I am a cup of strawberry milk in

Germany

I am a stolen shopping cart

I am a stable structure

I am an anxiety attack

WHISPERS CAUSE EROSION

I AM A WANTED ACCIDENT- WHO WANTS ME?!

Find me underneath a heart you're

trying desperately to hide.

I weigh you down like an ex lover

kept inside a jar in the dark.

If you cannot see how I ripple

amongst the hearts of toads and

wannabe punk youth,

how my laughter warms cold nights.. I will give you eyes

with working retinas and

a mind full of unconditional

love. I find home outside of

you. I have been invited

in so many homes.

They're warm but they cannot

hold my rain clouds

I was and wasn't meant to exist-

all at once- I am an oxymoron.

I do not owe, I

have no debts. Consider me a

failed abortion, a priceless painting,

a page turner
