the hermit was once a child, too

Coming from a background
   where my voice absorbed
      into the walls daily

   & everything I’d said was always
        picked apart

          So I
       sh
        redd
               ed myself

     I know the reason you ask questions
                like I’m an encyclopedia
      because when I was a kid
   I was reading the encyclopedia
                            for
                            fun

              I never wanted to not
                   know|I still always want to be
         prepared & trust me if I don’t know

                        you’ll fucking hear me yet

    BRAVO! That’s a genius pun in form and theme. Intense and right on point, that’s a knock out👊 write.
