Perspective is everything.

Without it, we wouldn’t think or feel the same way.

Perspective is key and with it we can break away from the murky thoughts that cling together

The hollow souls that last forever

To be heard is impossible. To be or not to be this doesn’t matter.

Smile and wave but don’t make sound.

But like a hound you will be found. Hiding beneath the mask from the soldiers with the task.

We will never see things on the same level.

I’m begging for peace but you think I’m the devil.

Say what you want, feel what you will.



Who ever gave you the power

to tell me that I am not capable,

because I am a woman I cannot be successful

and still be beautiful?

What ever gave you the impression that I needed

you to tell me that I am beautiful in order for me to believe it?

Why must you go to all these extremes

to tell me who I can and can’t be?

Where does it say that I need to look

just like every other woman out there?

When has it ever been wrong for someone to be


To see the world in a different angle.

To love something that is a little different

To have a face that doesn’t resemble another

To not cover up every single one of my flaws.

I am not them. I am not you. I am not her.

Nor will I ever be.

Fighting myself to believe that I have been right all along.

Y’all don’t know.

Although, you’ve always been wrong, I thank you.

For exposing me to the truth.

I know now where I stand.
