A Minotaur Life

Under the weight of a free and wild world That I could run away to. But that day could never come sooner.

A Minotaur Life is a poem written by Dana Trick and shared with The Ugly Writers with the theme Recovery for the month of March.

 

A Minotaur Life

 

Myself,

My soul, my person,

Are of two worlds—

Harmony and chaos,

Humanity and monsters,

Love and hate.

Simultaneously

Accepted and rejected,

Worshipped and shamed,

Displayed and hidden

By everyone and no one,

I go on living, breathing, wandering

Within these labyrinth walls.

My slumber is spent dreaming

Of these walls someday falling

Under the weight of a free and wild world

That I could run away to.

But that day could never come sooner.

Even then,

Though the truth mocks me constantly,

I continue living for something better.
