I am not A or B ~ by Ande Johnson

Cannot check yes no or even may… be
Not boy
Not girl
Not young
Not old
I am the space between
Beyond the outlier
A distant frontier yet undiscovered
Seeking only my answers
Finding only my questions
Looking for definition along the blurred edges
Not in the trimmed hedges
I am not fenced in
But I am not growing wild
I am Boxed in and
Locked out
I am not A or B
I am Lines Left Blank
I am Unnamed
I yearn for contentment
Instead
I am the movement
The transition
The search
