Art by Zia Priom

I was told not to hold it in
That my superpower
Is my emotion
So then why do I feel so
Powerless
Watching hours
Laugh as they walk past
And futures
Betting on how long I’ll last
While I sit in the car
Til my breathing
Starts to fog the glass
Begging
The seconds to pass faster
They instead pass slower
Obstinate little…
