It is frightening

To outgrow places faster

Than you can outgrow

The people you share

Them with, and to feel

As if you have become

A wrong kind of person

For all the right

Kind of things out there,

But still not be

Able to leave.


“I was mortified by the prospect of becoming hopelessly trapped in someone else’s story.”
