What it's like to be me.
It's just simply a poem describing what I feel like being an american citizen.
I know that you are loved and admired by many
But I honestly don’t see why
You must see the citizen’s look of fear
Or maybe you think they’re just shy.
But how I wish you could see why we are far from the best
I wish you could see all the problems we face
If you do that then maybe people will think you actually have a heart in that cold chest
I wish you could see beyond your white walls and stop singing the false jubilee
Then maybe you can somewhat imagine what it’s like to be me.
Me, a simple female citizen trying her best even though I’ve been double crossed.
By a system who thinks that my life is nothing but a silly game.
A game that often makes me feel like I’ve already lost.
Growing up I thought that my life would be happy even through the pain
But my little soul had not seen the overwhelming darkness that this country possesses
Now every minute of every day I’m fighting to break out of cold sexist chains
Life isn’t supposed to be this hard
Or this cruel
But forever I will wake up and see the scars
Caused by hatred and divide
Maybe when I have children, things will be different
Or I’ll just have to teach them to always stay inside.
