“A Sense of Self”

Boldly marks through the problem 
An expression of your autonomy 
You decide which Life complication you’ll solve  
or delete  
or deny  
Your independence gets erased   
Because questions can’t be skipped  
You spin out of control   
Terror and tantrums entwined  
As you scream and run and hide—  
Even from yourself
