We Are the Kiddie Pool

A POEM BY NNILSIA

It’s not easy being shallower than shallow it’s not easy being a kiddie pool the shallowest of shallow. A loser a loner a weirdo a lone wolf I am a free spirit I am the black sheep the blackest of the sheep I am a nerd I am bad I am a goody heartless to shoed rat I am a brat. It is not something I can control it is not hard it is not easy it is unknown. I am the wannabe the snake the snitch the tattle tale. I am the kiddie pool the water that goes up to my ankles so shallow yet I drown I am drowning I will always drown I am known for this I am known for being the kiddie pool. No deepness of my waters just the shallow translucent water that I swallow in day in day out. But now I know so I wallow and waddle I try and get out it is no luck, there is no luck. I will always be here in this spot it is what I am known for, what I will always be known for. It is me, it will always be me. But then I am gone drifting wading falling flowing into deeper waters they are letting me go they are helping me out. I look back and know they did not let me out they did not help me they helped themselves because when I look back I see they placed someone new in my spot. They are the loser the loner the weirdo the lone wolf a free spirit a black sheep they're the blackest of the sheep  a nerd  they are bad they are a goody heartless to shoed rat they are a brat. It is not something they can control it is not hard it is not easy it is unknown to them. They are the wannabe the snake the snitch the tattle tale.

We are the kiddie pool, we will always be the kiddie pool.
