I'm Not Here For You

I’m not here to please. I’m here to find peace.

I’m not available to be used. I’m here now free, but it’s happened before.

I’m not expected to be or do. I’m here to be and do what my heart desires.

I’m not going to submit or be silent. I’m here to speak up, give voice, evolve.

I’m not here for any reason but heart. Forever fallible, forgiving forevermore.

Your Bill (of Rights) is Due

Reading, reading, ever reading.

News and politics. Constant inputs. 

 Contextualize and personalize.

Historical hypocrisy.  Contemporary contradictions.

Some rights were won. Labeled inalienable.

All rights are still being hard fought. Inalienable only if liable.

To fight, summon courage to overcome complacency.

Must beat the fear that roots the silence. 

It costs to stand up. Bravery is vulnerability.  

Today, the bill is due.  You want change?

Pay the balance for yourself, see what change you get back.
