Privilege Underdog

what-do-u-c-1

 

you are a privilege

underdog

and yet, you have

the audacity, to

hurt me

break me

tear me apart

I wept

I cried in silence

I agonize in fear

you are a privilege

underdog

your insolence

destroyed me

robbed me of

the beauty

and elegance

I have

you took away

the best

of me

my eyes

are scald

for all of the tears

I cried

tears prick

tears flood

  1. Beautiful words michnavs, this is how I felt when I went to the local shops this morning for a bit of food. A woman opened her ugly mouth in Arabic thinking I did not understand.

      Ohhh my gosh Nanette..it happened to me too many times..i dont understand why some people can just blatantly stab other people for the simple reason that they thought you dont know your language.
