Would Want

Standard

try to be passive
only to fail
try and be assertive
not a personality trait
try to survive
put food on the table
though received
those unable to stomach
try to work simply
find continual bombardment
try to be one self
told this is who
you are
left with only the freedom
of wanting to be me

-Jennie Nawrocki

Images

Standard

images melt
into stories
one person
in many parts
all absorbed
shows with
each picture
feelings imposed
through manipulation
bring emotional
dealings and healings
they say
are quick fixes
why does it
feel so horrible

-Jennie Nawrocki
