!THAT PLACE!

The OTHER truth

0 notes

Prison is death with the exception of company and while many men have been driven to their knees because there was no place else to go, I have been driven to stand-up so that no man, convict or “bossman” can ride on my back.
Me.

I am 48 years of hope hoping for hope that things will eventually get better 
I am almost a half-century’s worth of being sick and tired of being sick and tired and quite frankly I am sick and tired of it 
I am desperate for purpose 
  
I think fairness is a plate of food and a warm bed for all
I think people should be recognized and loved not discarded
I think an awful lot about living but I’m almost anxious to die
 
I want to make more of an impact not minimum wage
I want to make friends
I want to make a difference
 
I do what I can to improve my life and try to improve on others
I do not give up or quit
I do think I can make it though if only I’d get noticed
 
I hate the fact that I don’t count
I hate mirrors that look at me (most days)
I hate that I hate
 
I wish for drastic change (at least for 99% of us)
I wish I wasn’t me (most times)
I wish I would’ve wished for wishes (I just used up all 3)
 
I know it will get better though because it cant get any worse
(I know I’m wrong on that one)
I know you probably agree
 
I am grateful though
I am grateful for you
I am grateful for the 99%
 
I thank you all
I thank you for your service and your message of hope
I thank you for sharing the pathway to purpose
 
I am now on that path
I am being counted
I am…the 99%

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.
I’m tired of unlivable wages.
I’m tired of being without healthcare.
I’m tired of not having a place of my own.
