    During my evaluation yesterday they gave me a couple of assignments that I need to complete before Friday morning when I return for a follow up evaluation. The first assignment is to write a poem or short story about my “feelings” during today’s evaluation. The second is to create a picture which depicts my childhood in the way I would have liked it to have been. This is my poem explaining my emotions during the meeting.

    Familiar Costume

    my trembling hands are concealed
    hidden in the comfort of my pockets
    fingernails claw at covered skin
    digging for courage and realism

    my feet bounce in rhythm on the floor
    struggling to remain glued in place
    itching for a fight or flight response
    they search for traction and quick escape

    my chest pounds out a steady drum beat
    like the movie Alien it’s trying to escape
    by breaking through a corporeal bond
    trapped in assumed comfort yelling for help

    my eyes drip out a vision of freedom
    seeing narrowly through a disguising mask
    shaking hands try to push back in the truth
    but only serve to resituate a familiar costume
