i’m entitled

 

the man asked

why do you look so worn?

 

money

my daughter’s future

my never-ending pain

my existence taken with a grain of salt

and i am so overlooked.

 

the man shrugged

your problems are no different from anyone else.

 

you motherfucker

can’t my worries be mine?

can’t even my grief

stand out in a crowd?
