The Rebels

Deep down, you wish

To become a person

Who no longer

Stifles screams and lets them

Rush out of a thin

Slit between thick vocal cords

That have grown used to

A life of staying shut;

You wish to rebel

Only to see where

It takes you to

And what it does

To those who have been

Watching you struggle

Foolishly all this time;

You wait for a rebirth,

Because a lifetime

Is not enough to try things

That could tear

The very fabric you have

Been weaved into,

So all you can do

Is steadily slip out,

One little thread at a time;

It might create a ripple

Large enough to topple

At least a few things over.

  1. “Is steadily slip out,
    One little thread at a time,
    It might create a ripple
    Large enough to topple
    At least a few things over.” That is exactly how positive development works….step out a little at a time, learn, grow, and then do it again and again. What a wonderful poem, Aaysid. Awesomeness. ☺️
