THIS IS ME UNSHELTERED


UNSHELTERED

This is what I look
like when I’m
unsheltered

Not necessarily
happier but also
not as stressed as
I find myself right
now

It seems the
worry becomes
intense knowing
that I’m here and
the fear of the
unknown and
the anxiety of the
unclear

Will I ever
look this way again
Half complete
without a home
or without a true
or trusting friend

Taking for granted
of what I had then
constantly
undecided about
what’s best for
me in the end

Being sheltered
doesn’t define me
But I’m oh so afraid
that being here
will remind me

That I was once
nothing and
will always be
nothing to anyone
who knows this past
of mine

And being here
has tramatized me
once again
Will I end up here
again and again?

Physically and
mentally a cycle
without a
brighter
end
