I do not belong

Little world
Allowing myself
Access to
Just slightly
Past this gate
As if I am
An intruder
In my own life

No qualifications to be
No joy that I am
Allowed
I falter
Ask permission
Ask forgiveness
Ask again

If I make myself small
Enough
Can I be seen here?
I wish to disappear
To find a corner
Untended
To plant my soul in


Where I can grow
In dappled light
Away from footpaths
And eyes not ours
