hurdles

boxes all kinds of boxes

but the ones you want most

they keep on the top shelf

just out of your reach

no matter how hard

you try to please them

well that’s what they will tell you

& if you want

go on & believe it

let the words hold you down

the better part is remembering

all the other words they used

you were broken

could never be fixed

would amount to nothing

your kind don’t fit

& all these

are but hurdles to leap over

not to show them wrong

but for you

to know them wrong
