hidden

freckled nose, knobby kneed, 11 year old girl
hidden behind designer frames, and an hourglass figure
watches, waiting and wondering
who can see right through to her

heritage

sometimes the air i inhale is so thick
saturated in decades of heritage
drenched with legacies
that i am compelled to exhale
the very depths of my life
that i might leave an inheritance
for future generations

numb

void of feeling, emotion, and strength
except pain
i think i can still feel pain
only now it's more of a dull inescapable weight
with no interest in being repaired
i am
undone
