Looking Over My Shoulder I See…
A world full of despair and pain
I see the smile of a child and I understand – that is the way forward
One way or another we need to sacrifice. But what will you sacrifice? your dignity? your family?
I move on, my feet bare witness of the journey back home. Do I stay and conform? or do I persevere against all odds?
How do you want me to be? like you, like him, like her, like the rest? Can I please be MYSELF and and and… NOTHING ELSE.
