nov pad 2014 6: happy now?

are you happy now?

i've thrown my coat
in the street

trying to defend myself
from the power
of your words

don't you know
that even though i talk
a big man's talk

i'm still young inside
struggling within

trying to figure out
what my place is
in this world

and even though
i threaten you

those words aren't me

i'm learning to be
what you make me

hardened and scared
all at once

waiting for the next fight
to happen

hoping to be free
