Should I just give up?
Tired of trying to dialogue
Listening to monotonous monologues
Not thought through
Pointing fingers that cast long shadows.
I long for some more light
Some fresh, clean air
Not having to always justify what I think
Treated like a freak for seeking justice.
Fumbling to pioneer; Not perfect but intentional at least.
Why is it so wrong to try and usher in some change?
Why is standing up for oppression so disconcerting to others?
Why is taking a stand ununderstandable?
This is who I am
Pissing you off
Looking for more
Acting for justice
This is me.
I shall carry on,
Best foot forward.
I will plug my ears to your pedantic, pessimism.
I will close my eyes to your sharpened finger nails.
I will try, I must try.
