Just a Number


My name is 1633161
Controlled by the pills
The barriers they set
Cold stares, quiet voices

"Are they crazy? Untamed beasts?"
No, but you, I am just 1633161
Not Maddy, Lexi, or Elise
I am just a number

A broken piece to a broken puzzle
"Will they fight back?"
"Hurt us? Each other?"
No, the battles in our minds are too strong

We hide behind the numbers
You...behind your names
I am just a number
Not Maddy, Lexi, or Elise
