Safe

I remember seeing it

“The Boy in the Plastic Bubble”

John Travolta living in a plastic- enclosed world

To keep the germs out

To survive

I felt just the same

Surrounded by plastic

A bubble of my own making

Designed to keep me safe

A way to stay alive

Became a prison of my own design

Like John

I’ve built up my immune system

I’m ready to walk outside

To leave the safety of the bubble

To be in the world once more

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: bubble
