The poem(s) are below...



Avoid the place 
that suffocates you, 
mistaken for care. 

Avoid the place where 
judgments and criticisms fly 
mistaken for jokes. 

Avoid the sermons that 
breaks you down 
mistaken for discipline. 

Avoid the place where 
people resides and rules 
with pride and authority. 

Avoid the place where 
your voice shouldn't be heard,
for it is not required. 

Avoid the place that 
rules you with fear 
mistaken for respect. 

Avoid the place where 
your heart can’t dream its own, 
for it’s bounded by another. 

For me, 
all I have to avoid
is home.
