Double Vision

by Nii Parkes

It isn't easy living life
when you know
you have to think twice
as fast.

Whether I
fall or rise
or trip or run
or shout or sing
or dance or clap
or laugh or wail
or stutter or whisper...

I know
the little questions
my mind asks
will come
in twos
- are they judging
or my colour?
