Dissolving Boundaries

I was born unwanted

Forced to be here
A mere expression of
The momentary lapse of judgement
A biological byproduct
Of junkies

Passed around like a piece of meat
Thrown to the wolves
Devoured by the all consuming ‘knowing’
That something was wrong with this picture
Getting nothing but static no matter
Which way it was framed

Left wandering and wondering
What it means
To be unloved and alone
In the middle of a crowd
Standing in Portland on a bridge
Looking for a reason not to scream

Years later understanding
We’re all products of this same system of study
Open book tests
On what it means
To make meaning out of experience
And the decisions that arise
