Slipping

Time is slipping away

And I hoped you would stay

But I’ll be slipping too

I wished you well

I wished you good

I’ve done all I know I could

But time

Is my enemy and time is my friend

I wished I could see it till the end

But time is slipping away

And I will be slipping too

Change

They wonder why

She sits there

Speaking language she didn’t choose

Getting much too close

To forgetting her mother tongue

Wings sealed in a box

Her brown locs

Painted blonde

They wonder why she changed

She only did it

To survive

Atomic

I’ve been an atomic bomb

Masquerading as an atom

Left with no charge

Lonely

I felt like I needed to tame

The explosiveness within

The oh where can I begin

To tell another story

I am an atomic bomb

Stuffed in a fragile case

This body

This place

Now realize

I

Am

More

Than I thought

I was
