Identity

You say lead and

people say follow.

 

Everything you do, speak and wear

will be accounted for that moment,

any moment, despite the saying

“Only God and nobody else can judge you”

because society has constructed an ideology,

a fixed norm from which you cannot deter.

 

Social stigma attached to everything,

insulting me about my own identity by

fools who only make me prouder and stronger

about the rich blood that flows through my body

full of rich history, culture and language

that my ancestors fought for by forging empires and

great nations to mark their place in history.

 

Not to be mocked

but to be feared.

Not to be forgotten

but to be remembered.
