Lost before labels

by Lilly Moone (Insta: @moone_draws)

what am i?

i am someone who needs

to explain herself to everyone

she meets

where can i exist in peace?

what am i?

i don’t like anyone, i say

i’m just too young right now

and today is not the day

that i find myself

what am i?

everyone keeps asking

so i had to pick out a boy

who could hide me and help me 

avoid that question longer

what am i?

i am lost and i am alone

and i’ve gone through so many names

trying to find the right tone

that might describe me
