Soul For Sale

Always front of the class,
Waiting for the time to pass.
Trying to fit in
But not living for the past.
Hey, I’ve got a soul for sale.

What will it take to fit this social norm?
I’m eager and able to conform,
Should be a smarty but when I open my mouth
Out comes another word storm.

Can’t get my thoughts straight;
My sexuality too.
When will things become clear?
‘Cus again I’m feeling faint
And there’s nothing I can do.

White canvas and magic marker to
Etch out a message to my peers:
How will I pull through?
Hey, I’ve got a soul for sale
And I want to be just like you.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
