Don't Do That

"Don't do that" a common utterance of disempowerment
A three word society on its own
filled with expectation when the first mistake was made
A sense of being unloved, peaking through a pessimistic lens of hearing
"Don't do that" A belief system that feeds off of "I'm not enough"
A space in which, judgment fills the ears and isolates the mind
with a repeated voice in search of coherence
in which, one will never find
love becomes a task, passion that resonates inside
slowly starts to resonate,
than shrivels up and dies.
