Domino Effect

A Poem by Rose Diamond
"

I've had no motivation to write lately, but I plan on returning from my hiatus :)

"
How are we supposed to be strong
When we fall at the slightest touch?

How are we supposed to be sturdy
When we crash at the most gentle breeze?

How are we supposed to be happy
When all we do is disappoint?

How are we supposed to feel free
When we're built to be knocked over?

How are we supposed to feel desired
When we're no longer played with at recess?

We are not the blocks that make up the base
Or the blocks that beautify the top
We are the blocks that were designed for failure
The blocks that were doomed to die

Nobody admires our handiwork
They admire our vulnerability
Our weakness

They build us up only to break us down
Watch as we fall
As we push

They watch as we collapse
At the slightest movement
The smallest problem
The most minor of conflicts

We are weak

We are vulnerable

We are dominoes
