Word of the Day Challenge: Perplex
I am trying to do the right things
I am trying to follow the rules
I am trying to be a good friend, a good daughter, a good aunt and sister
I wear my mask, I sit alone I stand alone, I am alone.
I am so alone.
Sentenced to solitary
For doing the right things.
Sentenced for doing right by my neighbors, people I will never meet, the people I know.
I wish we could all go home
but if we did that right now
all you would see
is an almost decorated Christmas Tree
standing in the corner of my living room
that I keep forgetting to plug in.
