To Society:

STOP selling us our deepest insecurities
on subway cars and hopeful mornings-

Perfection of the self
begins from within.

The steel rails that carry commuters
exposing the heart (through the eye) to
comparison, pain, a not-good-enough mindset,
are too frail to carry passengers far enough
to where it matters,
where they break,
where they hate themselves.

I’m tired of walking past advertisements
with my head
bowed
down.
