If I scream loud enough will you hear me?
If my voices shatters your earlobes
And my fists break this glass,
If I set aflame the norms of our home
And I smoke out these memories,
Will it be enough to teach you
How much I’m haunted by our past?
But as I walk across this threshold,
As I touch the remnants of our hope,
And I see my altered reflection
Strewn in fractured mirrors across our floor,
I realize I may have become
Everything I was fighting against,
Everything I always hated,
Everything I once said was on the other side of this door.
