6. A Taste of Exile

Would you sacrifice a comfortable life
For the sake of freedom
When even your thoughts
Are not welcome
A heart can only break so much
In a family designed
As a fascist regime
Disguised as a utopian dream
Not at all villains
Simply victims of such politics
Inherited from generations of practice
When can they learn to open their mind
To the woman I have become
When differences are labeled as rebellion
When will I be brave enough
To simply drop all arms
And take all their bullets
Maybe then
They’ll understand.

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
