The Introvert

​Outskirts is survival

Predetermined path
No choice. Not truly
All one knows
Not indicative
Of preference
Search always
For a gate

Dont do it
Stay put
Dont do it
Stay put
Dont do it
Yes, stay put
Opportunities lost
Melted chances

Step in lethal
Possible failure
Always
They do not know the torture
Of trained periphery
Forced early
To embrace
Awfulness of self

Give
Dont take
Give
Dont take
Give
Dont even ask
To Be
The no, the risk

As it rises
The current
Its force
Against
The whisper’s nudge
Strength in weakness
Which will
Will win
