Respect me.
I plead with my eyes
Willing him to understand
I am more than this
I have value

Respect me.

He doesn’t care
Utility only
Valuable until unneccesary

RESPECT ME

I yell silently
But he sees only weakness
Refusal to act

Respect me.

Tears wont come
Pain lashes my heart
But I wont let him win

RESPECT ME.

I didnt say it
I stared into darkness
Muttering hate until daybreak

RESPECT US.

I cried to them
To the ones who listened
Praying they saw the pain

Respect me.

Why cant we see it?
When others beg?
To be human
To be respected

Respect me.
