No Help for Us All

I awake nameless

With no purpose

Caught in a world

That churns out

Stagnant visions

We are driven to conform

Just fit in

And suffer as required

In order

to confirm to others

We have paid our dues

Even when

We pay more

Because we are different

Again and Again

Without fail

and without credit

*

Calmly stirring the pot vigorously

My goals are set

My mind

The handle

Opposition to my lead triggers me

They get upset

Though I follow their plan out

Just a little bit better but more personalized

They don’t focus on the person

Only stereotypes

I say “Peace and Love”

They say

“Don’t believe the hype”

*

Since I was young

I’ve swallowed my pride

Years follow years

still my feelings I hide

Then people challenge

my intense kindness inside

I’m going to say

“Get F’n with it

Has your conscience died?”

No mincing words:

I’ve been put thru the wringer

Chastised for being me

Stereotypes linger

*

I awake nameless

With no purpose

Caught in a world

That churns out

Stagnant visions

We are driven to conform

Just fit in

And suffer as required

In order

to confirm to others

We have paid our dues

Even when

We pay more

Because we are different

Again and Again

Without fail

and without credit

*

Stormy worry leaves dirty puddles to splash

I’m prepared in my boots and coat of years

How do we get past a day that’s been smashed?

One less patient may wallow in tears

Any colder and I would’ve died

They don’t focus on the person

Or look for strengths that hide

I say “Peace and Love”

They say

“You are not our type”

*

Since we were young

Strong

Not allowed pride

Years on years

Hoarding praise

They criticize

Then they challenge

Our intense kindness inside

I’m going to say

Don’t be so jealous

We’re on the same d@mn side!

No help for us all

That’s the real stinger

We achieve and struggle

You sit back

Point your finger
