When

Fri, 11/09/2018 - 14:08 -- ihart

I'm tired of it.

The feeling of regret and remorse,

Two things that go together, but shouldn't.

That other people feel.

Not to mention the feeling of exclusion.

Alone, afraid, ashamed,

And unwanted.

People who get bullied on social media platforms,

Being labeled as "ugly", "stout", or even "vacuous"

Just the general fact of being compared to others.

Society has made us hide who we are,

and we let it.

It's time to unveil our masks.

It's time to let us show the world, who we are.

There should be no more sick feelings of

Regret and remorse,

But instead

Satisfaction and pride

Within ourselves.

But when will we take action?

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
