The Gravity of …

The Gravity of…

irrelevant was the label hung
over your head the moment

you drew your first scared breath,
no one noticed them bludgeoning

those lies deeply into your mindset,
lest you forget you’re their burden…

but there’s more so out there than scars,
just project much further past the stars

don’t get caught up in the gravity of
other people’s projectile self loathing
