Take Up Space

Why do I always feel like I’m in the way

Blocking someone else or

Inconveniencing them

Why do I concern myself with their comfort

Their ease and experience while

Never considering my own

My simple presence bothersome

My audacious body daring to

Take up space

When will I stop apologizing, retreating

Searching for another space, any place

I could belong

And welcome myself to take up whatever damn space

I need
