Pigeon Hole

Why do people need to
pigeonhole you?
you are only one way in
their eyes
instead of all the
ways you are…
complex with no lies
living in your truth
not a cut out plan
of someone else’s
view of proof of
what your path
needs to be …
what would give
comfort to their
stalemate youth,
their rigid, non-conforming,
closed, judgmental
– scared of the
unknown selves …
fear is the truth
for many so
those who
break out of
a mold
that someone else
holds for them
shines like a brand
new penny
those who berate and bully
to keep you in a hole
that makes them feel
more powerful or strong
– a pigeonhole?
what pigeon would stay
when it has wings to
fly away and let
others watch from
a distance their
freedom to live as
they will and
not swallow
another’s bitter pill.
