2017 Day-By-Day

Day 131

Written a couple of years ago.


It’s hard to feel like you belong

Or maybe it’s just me

Walking on the street, I worry about

how I look

if my hair is messy

my shoes tripping me up

At work I worry about

knowing enough

working too much or too little

being seen as an asset

At Temple I worry about

finding someone I know

sitting alone

keeping up

It’s a wonder that I step outside everyday

I force myself

because one day I won’t feel this way.

I hope.
