I Am Angry

By Julia Lima, TIWP Student

I am angry at you, World!
I am angry because you pick and push and shove and cut until I can reach your standards
I am angry because you have standards
I am angry because I can’t break free of your standards
I am angry because you tell me to change
I am angry because I don’t want to change
I am angry because I want you to change
I am angry because I am not seen as perfection
I am angry because I can’t reach perfection
I am angry because I don’t know what perfection is
I am angry because my life is decided for me
I am angry because I want to decide for myself
I am angry because I can’t decide what I want
I am angry at you, World,
and I’m tired of being angry.
