(Poetry)
published in Moonchild Magazine, Issue 5

A bundle of contradictions
split in two
one side
            exuberant
the other one
                        much purer
            imagine
only half of what is known
beat her down
           hide her
afraid
           people
                      will discover
she’s disappeared
against a more powerful enemy
voice within
            sobbing
keep trying
find a way
if only
            there were no other
            people in the world



This is a found poem.
