little rebel

i’m being stubborn

like a child

i don’t want

to give in

i’m being selfish

like a starfish

i don’t want to



the more i

need to

the more i don’t

want to

and vice-versa


i’m driving me crazy


and surely

i’m old enough to

know better

to be good

so surely not

and back and

forth i fight

with myself

never knowing

whether i win

or i

win or

either way

i lose
