Deeper into Milford Sound (by Stuck in Customs)


to this day 
despite a loving husband 
she doesn’t think she’s beautiful 

kids used to say she looks like a wrong answer 
that someone tried to erase 
but couldn’t quite get the job done 
and they’ll never understand 
that she’s raising two kids 
whose definition of beauty 
begins with the word mom 
because they see her heart 
before they see her face.


We weren’t the only kids who grew up this way 
to this day 
kids are still being called names 
the classics were 
hey stupid 
hey fat 
seems like each school has an arsenal of names 
getting updated every year 
and if a kid breaks in a school 
and no one around chooses to hear 
do they make a sound? 


As if depression is something that can be remedied
by any of the contents found in a first aid kit.

To this day,
he is a stick on TNT lit from both ends
could describe to you in detail the way the sky bends 
in the moments before it’s about to fall 
and despite an army of friends 
who all call him an inspiration 
he remains a conversation piece between people 
who can’t understand 
sometimes becoming drug free 
has less to do with addiction 
and more to do with sanity.

What form of weather/seasons do you prefer?


It’s a tie between Winter and Summer. The rest is just allergies and school starting.
