I feel like I am trapped in this body. 

Maybe, staying out of it will give me some peace. 

Maybe, then I will feel at ease. 

Maybe, then I will be able to breathe. 


This body brings unwanted expectations 

from people who think they know me

and think that they can tell me rightly

what are my body’s strengths and limitations. 


Since I don’t want these

unwanted expectations, 

I want to escape from this

fluffy body figure. 


I don’t want to know people’s expectations. 

I don’t want to know what they think. 

All I know is that they are a source of frustration

who keep adding 

to my source of stress, anger and irritation. 


Running Away From My Body
