The Familiar

My body craves the familiar

Even though the familiar is extremely hurtful

The familiar took away my voice

The familiar forced me to mistrust myself

The familiar jailed my mind and told my body that I was free to do what I wanted

I tried to belong to myself

But my body and my mind cannot be separated if I want to move forward

The familiar didn’t think that I would ever have the strength

Now I have what is mine

And I don’t know what to do with myself
