Habit*

 

The bed.

The kitchen.

The way I always put the glass next to the sink.

The way I make my sandwich every morning.

Chocolate milk and popcorn.

The view from my window.

Closing the door when mom comes home from work.

The anxiety I get when I know I’m going to drive my car in the morning.

The intense, bitter feeling I get when I see dad’s dirty hands when he comes home from work.

Hiding my journals under the textbooks.

My back hurting because I’m always in front of the computer.

I thought this was who I am.

I thought I needed it in order to be myself.

But I don’t need it.

Life is but a big habit.

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.
