The Reach~by Nathan Antoine



The Reach

Image may contain: 1 person

Who am I?

I am a bird afraid to fly
I’m afraid to see skies and the trees
And the birds and the bees
Because the closer I get to them
The more I lose him
And he is who I am

Who am I?

You want to know
So I tell you
Then you look at me differently
Although you feel same

Who am I?

Inquiring minds
Cause complicated shutdowns
They poke holes
In boxes held together by ever changing ideas
Of self and hope

Who am I?

To be or not to be
Questions held hostage by my imperfections
That repeat while I decide
Who I am

Who am I?

They want me to be John Doe
Because I am too far left
Too far right
But I am
Who I see in the mirror
Even when he does not see me back
He is who I am.
