The Struggle Poem - Calling for a revolution. Welcoming all outcasts and anoms …


The Struggle

Is it a problem with me,
Or with society?
Do we not all serve a purpose,
Or should I exit politely?
No time for people of our kind,
Different-minded,
Striving.
Maybe I should roam again,
And be proud,
Of the pools that I’ve dived in.

I would not take it back,
Not change a thing,
For the struggle,
Is invigorating.
Are we born with the sight,
Or is it evolution,
Maybe it’s time,
To start the revolution.

A revolution of what you say,
The battle for true equality.
That we do serve a purpose,
That we can find a way,
To live in peace, love,
And harmony.

I hate to feel weak,
Like I need someone’s help.
Like I can’t do it on my own,
Like A burden to be dealt.
To be put up with,
But forgotten,
A side note,
Who is rotten.

Even a rotten fruit,
The seeds can be used,
Who knows,
One day the progeny,
May spark the fuse.
I refuse,
To accept the views,
That I can’t be a leader,
And am merely confused.
Alone in my thoughts,
Contemplating utopic ideas,
A way for us all,
To cross the harsh weather,
Not just alone,
But together.

Oh how it is hard,
When for some the only answer,
Is liquidation.
I lobotomize myself,
Daily,
So others can enjoy their vacation.

But maybe there is a place,
Where I can be who I am,
No worries of judgment,
A world where I can,
Be someone again.

Why do some act like,
I am doing something wrong,
Wrong deep inside.
Oh how I long.
To be accepted,
For my strengths and my faults,
Trying to find,
The key to the vault.

Or maybe I am supposed to be this way,
Just singing my song.
Day by day.
Perhaps we are only weak,
Until we reach out and speak,
Our truths,
Our lies,
To the ones that we seek.

And perhaps one day,
the tables will turn,
And I will be there,
For anyone else,
Who also does burn,
Inside, with a flame,
Sort of the same.
Gifted, but misunderstood,
Not broken nor lame.

For many are seeking,
Some meaning,
In the chaos that is screaming.
To find the pearl inside,
Like a hidden treasure that’s gleaming.

It is hard when one is judged,
Especially in a society,
Where the stats are fudged,
And the lights are purged,
Removed of their worth.
When the monopoly is complete,
When one side has accepted defeat,
Do we retake control,
Our side is replete
With the composite,
Of diverse ways of thinking,
we all have something to give.
To a society on the edge,
Like a ship that is sinking.

People like us are seen,
As problems to be dealt with,
Or merely allowed to exist,
Like it is a favor,
To my kind,
That we are not all extinguished.

It’s hard to hear the words,
There is no room for you.
Your kind, your mind,
No room for the blind,
The frail,
The spiritually-inclined.
Is diversity only a thing,
When we look at the outside?

Why are we only judged by our falls,
When all I see is someone proud,
For standing up tall...
Merely a representative,
For the world full of people,
Who are gifted,
With no leadership,
Like a church with no steeple.

I would not take it back,
Not change a thing,
For the struggle,
Is invigorating.
Are we born with the sight,
Or is it evolution,
Maybe it’s time,
To start the revolution.

Blessed are the Peacemakers.

Angels still fly.”
