My convictions do not meander into arrogance,
My words arising from silence,
My boldness from having been meek,
My strength aspiring from past misadventures,
To champion the masses, I pledge;
Having battled alone –
Passionate I am in sheltering others under my wing;
Finite disappoinments shall never doùse the blaze of infinite hope,
Never fear being judged upon,
The perception of others does not dictate your self-worth.
Compassion I profess,
Harbouring a gratitude for all the kindness that is overwhelming.
Tabooed truths I daringly confront, despite the glaring discomforts it inculcates for some;
Some truths just nèed to be displayed,
Even so, I still observe more than I convey.
How about treating each other a smidgen better,
By taking accountability for our mistakes;
By respecting the differences amongst ourselves.
Infallible I am not, but to be ‘real’ I desire to be;
Deception and egoism I loathe desperately,
Loyalty and self-respect I insinuate persistently,
Injustice to another is indefensible conduct,
The guilt and karma to haunt one’s eternal peace.
A quiet voice is rising in recent days –
To be assertive in satirical ways.
Combat merely a peasant’s play, Mature communication steals the trophy any day.
Silence has been contended far too long,
The time has emerged for all have to have an equal say;
Their words and presence as signficant as yours and mine,
Listen impartially to what all are
trying to convey! 🗣👂
