have some pride

identity is a fickle girl
my whole life i’ve never been taught to be proud of her
she’s been scorned by the world, and scorched beyond return
but history shows ashes are what’s left when she’ll burn

and cinders are reborn into the flaming bird
spread your wings across a stonewall just to be heard
be true to yourself, scream your name, scream it loud
not just for a day, nor a month, look at yourself, and be proud

no matter what anyone says, you are valid as you
the end of the tunnel isn’t a “where”, it’s a “who”
share the weight of the world with your siblings by your side
and with that parting note, i’ll say: have some pride
it’s june, so happy pride month everyone!!

    I totally agree with Two Heartbeats. I didn't really understand the spirit of the post when I skimmed through it the first time, but after reading it more in depth, I unliked it and deleted my old comment and replaced it with a new comment. So, I'm really sorry if I offended you because that was not at all my intent! Also, great analogy with the papercut heart attack thingy. Again, super sorry :(

    Replying: *whistles completely unsuspiciously* not so great. I'm still researching and am just not sure how to start. There's not a shortage of information, quite the opposite, but I just don't know how to compose it. Like, is it an informative essay or an argumentative one? So, I'm kinda stuck so I'm writing meaningless poetry again :)
