The Mental Closet


That's how I felt

When you hear how Negative

Others see you

Without you being You.


My mind

Is what keeps me back

From showcasing

Who I was

And who I am now.


Freshman year

High School career

The Glass Closet


And I was left standing there.


From then on

Adulthood is the future

Courage to face the unknown

Is the best coming-of-age

One can experience.
