Suburbia

When you are born into suburbia,
You are cast into a role.
Acting out your life.

When you grow up in suburbia,
You are copied.
Pasted next door.

When you live in suburbia,
You adapt to adequacy.
Evolving to become “normal”.

When you grow old in suburbia,
You judge those who are different.
Sentencing them as other.

When you die in suburbia,
You feel truly afraid.
Knowing that you have not lived.

When you escape suburbia,
The first step of freedom
Feels like breathing for the very first time.
