institutionalized

well if you’d given her a choice

if you’d even bothered to at all

you’d find that she simply

cannot

be institutionalized.

you dare to clip

her glittering wings?

fit her colored soul

into a pint of thick paint

one single

box:

institutionalized.

you asked if she was happy

she could not

even speak

with her mouth filled

of practiced lies:

institutionalized.

12 years of hand-picked knowledge

4 years of restlessness

10 years of ardor and hard work

26 years of exhaustion

but no

real

education:

institutionalized.

well she’s your teenage dream

your red-ribbon box

smiling and waving

waving and smiling

zero brain capacity,

but her thick lashes compensate for that

right?

institutionalized.

forget the system.

forget it all.

and her as well.
