Acceptance (a prose poem)* by Jared Baly

Every day is a winding road, yet every night is a dream come true. The shy introvert can reveal his true self in the darkness, free from judgment and prejudice. The moon in the sky brings joy to a less fortunate soul, allowing him to express the true colors beneath his skin. Yet the sunshine traps him inside a box, restricting his actions and watching his every move. The daylight blinds those around him from looking past his exterior. Nowhere to escape or hide, yet wanting to be a grain of sand among the tides.

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
