It is not about you.
Whatever you have been told must be questioned.
You have been raised thinking that your problems will be extinguished
with the passage of time.
The fact is that your tribulations mean nothing
compared to the rest of us.
We have been exposed to the most virulent form
of inhumane perpetuation conceived by any one.
Our voices have been shunned
by the oppressors of hope.
You see me here
with my frigid body exposed to the elements,
and you hide when the truth, of the holy scripture
must be applied.
I trust only my own.
