Treasonous

Seems no one is fighting for me
Except for the man above
While everyone is shoving
To get to the top of the mountain
The symbolic Promised Land
To fulfill an unmet need
For not being valued
Or continuing the insanity
Of feeling entitled
I retreat further inside
Where I feel stuck
Yet still armed with an intuitive sense
That in the long run
I will earn whatever fate deems in store
Upon my own merit
Without selling my integrity.

There’s no need to feel scared or quiver
At the sight of a maddening Zombified crowd
Lost their way
But aren’t conscious of it
I’ve always believed
Working hard
Giving your best
Never afraid to point out injustices
While looking
And apologizing for my imperfections
Is the way of the truth
Now that belief is being
Put to the sternest of tests
And whether to be
Sad
Disappointed
Angry
Isn’t the issue
For they yearn me to fold
And bow out
Because it will relieve them
Of having to feel the perpetrated sins
God forbid, if they feel uncomfortable!
As they have discarded an empathy
They used to wear so proudly
Profoundly becoming
Unconsciously treasonous.
