NOTHING

nothing…

my problem never goes away
I went half way around the world
to try to regain my humanity
but the people who keep me in a cage
like an animal
were there too

they tortured me until I left my children
but this isn’t enough for them
they take everything from me
and then smile in glee
at my pain
as if it is something to be proud of
to cause another human being to fail
and live in misery

they have taken my health
I live in terrible pain
the way things are going
maybe even my life
they have taken my children
they have taken my family
they have taken my marriage
they take so many other things too
they put roadblocks in front of everything
I try to do, and then they lie about it

they have made me so I cannot
take care of myself
they won’t let me succeed at anything
they try to make me feel bad about everything
I do
they never get the ‘f’ out of my space
when I am dead, they will defile my grave

you see, I am nothing
I am a political zero
and everyday I become more of nothing
until nothing is left at all, and I am dead

Artist's Description

This is about political persecution and abuse. This is about invisible cages and lies. This is about being a target and having your life destroyed by people who have no concern or remorse for what they are doing.
