everyone is exactly who they are.

"i'm a million different people from one day to the next. i can change."

when i can,
i want to live free.
take picture of mountains.
tan my skin in the sun of the coast.
abandon base.
couch dive, dumpster hop.
wear the same clothes for weeks at a time.
bathe in rivers.
hop a plane to the east.
confined to nothing.
not even baggage claim.
when i can,
i'm tangling my mouse brown hair into dreads.
stripping my bones down bare.
ribbons on my wrist claim my wishes.
i will escape my family.
i will get out.
i will be okay.
i will sleep on picnic tables on the beach.
i'll be okay.
i'll be okay.
