    a note on freedom.

    Smooth.

         Sleek.

                                  Pressed down.

                   Stiff.

    Don’t move.

                      Stagnant.

              Don’t budge.

    Free but trapped.

    Trapped but free.

    Unbothered but bothered.

    Not good enough

    Yet just

    right.

     

    Clean and seen.

    But Queen not so serene

    But I mean,

    Is it okay if my edges aren’t laid today?

     

    Laid flat for the world to see

    me

    So pristine and keen

    I can catch your eye for all the wrong and right reasons

    But today

    Let the border to my thoughts

    Be a beauty you see as a mess

    Wound and bent

    Duress repent

    Today there are no babies here

    When you look above my evolving eyes

     

    All that I am is

    Untamed.

    But hey,

    No one ever said perfection was caged.

      Lovely. Very beautifully written. It’s been a long time since I’ve read real poetry. Thank you for sharing.
