F*CK EVERYTHING: Poem No 27
Thanks for reading F*CK EVERYTHING. Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.
why do i answer questions
in ways that i expect will please others
why do i think
in ways society has taught me to
just interesting enough
why am i marking time to someone else’s
why am i petrified of what
i might uncover
if i delve beyond
- make something meaningful
Thanks Emily. This is one of society's perennial questions: stay safe behind the mask, or risk rejection by being real. How can people today navigate these tricky waters in the face of overwhelming criticism and peer judgment via anti-social media and cancel culture? Hopefully by the end of this long poem (105 short ones pinned together) readers will have an enhanced response to this question.
I dig your line drawings! And great questions.
