Eyes On Me

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

The following poem is the first in a three-part series by senior Emily Ross on topics that have impacted her final semester at PBA.

i cannot walk

cannot talk

cannot breathe

without eyes on me

i cannot love

-- myself, i’m too self-centered

-- others, i’m too obsessed

without eyes on me

i cannot take a bus

a train

a stroll

without eyes on me

i cannot dress

cannot dance

cannot be out late

without eyes on me

i am asking for it

with eyes on me

i am responsible 

with eyes on me

i grow up 

i live

i die

with eyes on me
