Working for YOU
Fighting for YOU
Losing sleep for YOU
But me, I work two jobs, have three sick dogs, and over 100,000 dollars in student debt to pay off.
Not enough time to eat, for YOU
Crying for hours, for YOU
Migraines for days, for YOU
But I'm seemingly straight
I am white
Everything I've done means nothing. . .
I am still in support of BLM and the many activist groups in my town. I have put my life in danger and looked upon the man with an AR 15 and stood with my chin up as the opposers dogs threatened to attack.
But it is clear, because I am white and seemingly straight, my voice doesn't matter. As a woman I am use to this. I just didn't expect it from you. I thought, we were fighting for equality, for the marginalized, for those suffering. In return, you don't even know me and you take away my voice.
Keep on fighting the good fight, and you know where to find me.
