Between The Cracks

Between The Cracks


Between The Cracks
by Karyn Indursky

In a tangled web
caught by the spider
of society
where I'm unsure
where I belong.

Struggling in the tug-of-war
of stereotypical hypes
defining my status
as a poetess
when I'm not "Gothic."

Torn as a paper
being shredded by sizes
where I'm too fat
to be "pretty."

Crumbling like cookies
being eaten by savaging spectators
who mock medical conditions,
but make no effort to "see."

Rebuilding my faith
from internal strength
invoked by God, my son, friendship
and the potential of a new destination.
