Double

wallpaperbod.com


There is a fuel for every cage
we’re locked from assault
thyself

to become invisible –
the badge: guess,
where am I ?

The trigger to stereo-type
the desire
to fit

sixth sense sends no mercy,
the shadow zone
lit.

The list goes on and on
with reasons to hide
from light.

Can YOU stand
with grace and ease
original tall and bright?

  1. that is the question - to some, the purpose of life. To live so that you are not ashamed in the light. It keeps one very busy indeed

  7. stereo-types and the desire to fit can make us invisible in a certain way... good if we're not afraid to stand out from the mass at times..

  10. The sixth sense can be powerful and one needs to listen. The ending leaves a thought provoking question..I liked this..

  11. It is all about balance, isn't it? Well done and especially the question you pose at the end.

  12. invisibility is quite an effective yet dangerous place to hide. I really like this poem.

  13. stereotypes really piss me off... most are negative, yet, when you defy them, people act like it's a problem...why we rather keep each other in a box - idk...
