Subtle Signs

Let slip subtle signs

No one sees, OR

They pretend they HAVE

NOT seen.

Colours, words, silences

They IGNOR or miss

THEM. The signs

That could have told

A story TOGETHER.

Be open to the words

They don’t bite

THEY can’t

They’re WORDS aren’t they?

Or are they more

‘Do we need them?’

YOU ask

If THEY

Bring people together

Then why not let them

Bring ACCEPTANCE

We have a NEED

To explain, to categorise

Don’t WE

All just want to belong?

Boxes

Confusion is all part of growing,

It comes from now knowing,

That you don’t fit in the boxes.

 

Some of the boxes are inflexible,

They make you uncomfortable,

But some have a bit of give.

 

The boxes, are inescapable,

Though some are very unstable,

And new ones can be made.

 

So don’t give up, be brave,

Find ones you’d like to save,

Or, make the new ones.
