Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas cr hruiz2013

You try…
You try, but then if you’re good enough for this, you will not be good enough for that
You try, but then you’re excluded
You try, but then you’re not considered
You try, but then you’re eliminated, dismissed and invalidated
You try, but then you are part of all the faults
You try, but then you are hated
You try, but then you won’t fit in
You try, but then you are not accepted
You try, but then you are abused, used
You try, but if you do, you are not taken seriously
You try, but then you are talked about and gossiped about
You try, but then you are laughed at and you are now a joke
You try, but then you are bullied
You try, but then you are embarrassed to be because when you try then the stereotyping begins, the discrimination begins, the expectations begin
You try, but then no one wants you, no one trusts you, no one is sincere to you
You try, but then if you do then you find yourself all alone and they all change their minds
You try, but if you do, the categories that they choose to include you in will isolate you
Then you’re told it is ok to be who you are by all those that would be the first to embarrass, humiliate, intimidate, stereotype and discriminate against you…so rather that, you try to be everything else so you don’t have to cry because you try to just be who you are
Then you just don’t want to try anymore.
