POTHER: Poetry by Damon Whitsell



POTHER

I’m stimulated but frustrated
It’s so hard when I think I’m not seeing far
To correlate it, I separate it
I thought I saw now I think I didn’t see at all

My imperfections, not my selections
Can’t you see there’s a raging war inside of me?
A new position, a retransition
I know I could be right, I could be wrong

So tell me what it means to me
Am I safe here anymore?
Something’s trying
It just won’t let me be!

Elation with aggravation
I hope I make it through this situation
I’m exited , I can’t fight it
It’s so clear that I’m going nearsighted

Is this confusion my illusion
Or is it staring here in front of me?
A new position, a retransition
My excitement is mingled with confusion!

So tell me what it means to me
Am I safe here anymore?
Something’s trying
It just won’t let me be!
