[Poetry] Outgrown

Like shoes that pinch my toes
And socks stretched so thin
They tear into holes,

Like jeans that will not rise
No matter how much I shimmy
Them over my thighs,

Like a sweater squeezing too tight
Because it is ages since
It last fit right,

Like clothes, well-worn and loved,
I have outgrown this life in search
For one bigger to be part of.

Inspired by one of the best friends who said recently, “Stop shrinking to fit places you’ve outgrown.”
