I sit here

maybe he will look away,
maybe he will reach out his hand

Mothers say lean towards,
while fathers say just ignore.

I sit here
perhaps I am just a girl
perhaps my legs are broken

maybe she will reach out her hand
and break the rules of our parents

I sit here
perhaps I can think of the ways
and the reasons I am here

( I won’t blame mom, or dad, brother, or sister )

I sit here
perhaps I am willing and able
to pull myself to my feet
and stand on my own.
