Free to breathe

Free to breathe 

That’s how i felt when I breathed inside this world.

Along with the people I shared the herd.


I owned an oxygen  tank.

And wasn’t  scared to breathe .

They put their  expectations in me and their hopes

I couldn’t cope,

Their  expectations somehow broke

with dashed hope.

Questions of these people decided

If I was of the crowd?

Their decision to not let me breathe were out!

They chased , jumped and reached  me

I dodged, layed low and evaded,

Those questions

With strain of a smile



I couldn’t care

I was free,

Breathing  fully,

Invisibility reigned  within me.
