Glass Case All Day

I was born into a cage–
I statistically will not escape,
cohort, class, income, age
inherited ceilings.

Doesn’t feel as though
my aspirations are worth any less,
they just don’t go the same

Glass case all day
from inside it’s
practically invisible–
I’m practically indivisible.

Feel around the barrier,
free mime show for the exterior.
Each night while I sleep
my fingerprints get wiped clean.

It’s really fine,
out of sight out of mind.
Reach for endeavors
never quite sure what’s beyond me.

Daily poetry postings for your perusal. Scraps of intelligible thought Frankenstein stitched into a fabulous existential quilt. Feel free to talk poetry or philosophy with me--always interested in conversation and creation. >
