Changing

they’re going to watch me change

sit and stare as my hair grows shorter

my strides a little longer

my eyes looking higher

as my fists unclench

and my fingers feel the wind

my heart growing harder

my stomach becoming emptier

my feet becoming knowing

of where I’m heading

as I tear their paper love

and throw it in the air

and I smile
