Marginal Feelings

Oh, marginal feelings—

how I set you aside in

the interest of perceived

strength and capability.

Yet you jump out in the

margins of my class notes,

yearning to be heard among

the facts of my education.

You scream your sorrows

and anxieties in blue ink,

obliterating any white

space in your noble attempt.

You dismiss Supreme Court

cases concerning free speech

to present your own, providing

evidence hidden in your heart.

Oh, marginal feelings—

how you fill the page

with the ponderings

of a full mind . . .

. . . but disappear at

the sight of a blank

paper, white as snow.
