Over It All

Always discounted
dismissed as overblown
hell, disliked for being me,
just for being, even.

No point in
railing against the machine
the powers that be
people who
just
don’t
like
ME.
Like pissing into the wind,
blow-back is fruitless and
often counterproductive.

I respect my state
and am done with it.

Time for a new discourse
to be heard
understood and accepted
if by no other than me.
That is the start
that will change my world
and the only thing
to possibly impact
the world around me.
