my face looks swollen
tired from overusing muscles
to pretend i am okay
when i am not  okay

it is just part of surviving
around people that do not need to survive

although born out of the sky’s same dark womb
we live so differently

some leaning into the sharp edges of the world
some not
and some never needing to
