"you've grown!" they say
tall, perhaps
wide
but not up

up and out
and around
that i have yet to do

should i?
could i?
WILL i?

everyone else is doing it,
so why can't i?
am i not good enough
not smart enough?
do people not like me
should they?

who are they to judge?
are they real?
do they REALLY do that?
together?
by themselves?
why can't i?

are you sure?
this is really happening?
to everyone else?
EVERYONE?
some?
some is more than none
some is more than me

her too?
and him?
them?
since when?
when did "her" and "him" become them
was i sick that day?

THEM?
