Accept

The space I take up

Is often questioned, shamed

Why?

My emotions are worth the same as yours
My opinions matter as much

So why is it that I am looked at as less

Spaces are designed for an ideal

Rather than reality

I’m made to feel embarrassed that I exist

Why?

My value is equal to yours
My life is as precious

People who are different

In shape and in mind

Are asked to patient while the world adjusts

Why?

Why does the responsibility of patience rest on those that feel the hurt

Why does the apology have to come from those that feel the prejudice?

The world needs to get woke

To the differences that make individual’s

Instead of neglecting those who don’t fit in a box

Wear a certain label

Believe a certain idea

Love a certain person

Why?

Because we all belong

Because we are all entitled

Because we are all human

Why?

Because it’s right.
