Who Will Stand And Speak For Me?

Who Will Stand And Speak For Me?

Deep within the hidden shadows of my broken heart,
Is a sensation to quit caring for the things I cannot control.
I walk amongst the living as though I am a skeleton of myself,
Never to be known as a person of importance to have a reflection.

Tormented images are embedded behind the lenses of my eyes,
Delivering messages of sour views implanted by human fools.
My brain deciphers data so cruel that my imagination suffers defeat,
Humiliated by words and actions of lawless points of destruction.

Prejudice man and women ruining my self-esteem for equal justice,
As the short end of the stick does not describe the harm to thee.
Let us turn the tables so that they can suffer the pain inflicted,
And perhaps when I show them respect they will feel their evilness.

Who will stand up and speak for me when they stomp their feet,
Pressing down deeply to try and eradicate my human given race?
My flesh and its color bleed just as much the red as any of them,
So do I stand alone and will brave individuals remain silent forever?

Artist's Description

Just yesterday as I walked around and tried to mingle with the rest of the group I could sense their rejection of me. It was visible amongst the rest of the people that were watching, yet nobody stood up on my defense. I survived and became a better man for it, but it made me wonder how they would feel if it happened to them instead. Thanks for reading this.
