A Ray of Light
Spoken Word Poem,
Am I coming in clear?
Are you even listening?
You will not degrade me
Betray my trust
I have none in you
A waste of time that benefits no one
Blinding me with fictitious images of my oppression
I must digress
Give you common sense
A system that has failed me
Trying to take my will and make it diminish
This is finished
Everything I want done I have to do it on my own
No one can do it better than yourself
I'm finding my self worth
And it's all because of you
And the hell these laws put me through
Seeing the hypocrisy
Giving people who commit murder the death penalty
In my eyes it's the same thing
Only one you try to justify
What's the justice in taking a life
Sexual offenders still out on the street
Still sexually offending
Making the list of victims rise
And you wonder why?
I can't trust anyone around me
That's how bad it is
Fearing for my life, sanity, and will to live
The world offers us despair
But do you see that ray of light right there?
If you can, it means you can succeed
You can get past these scandalous things
That ray of light is the will to fight
The will to love
The will to become who we've dreamed of
Obtain that light
It's your battle to fight
The world can't hold you down.
