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.
