"Like a wildflower, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people never thought you would."

Eyes flicker, voices whisper
My tiny legs are glued to the wall
Bodies pace, hearts race
I have the best perspective of them all


Fists are flying, eyes are crying
I am forced to watch them brawl
Blackened eyes, lips full of lies
I have the worst perspective of them all

Diclaimer: this isn't me. I wrote this in about 5minutes at a poetry work shop. It was the first piece I've ever performed.
