privilege

i’m sick
of being told
that i hold hate
for people
what about the hate
that people
hold for me?
i’m told
to create a
safe space
for people
that have no space
for me

because i don’t
identify
as what
you want me to be
does that mean
my rights
my life
my being
are illegal
invalid
or just unpleasing
to you?

fuck you

and your privilege
too

i’m tired
of having to justify
why i do
what i do
why i say
what i say
only to have you
argue with me
tell me
what i should
do and say and be
excuse me
isn’t this
my skin
i’m living in?
thank you
now
go away

you seek
to deny
me
my existence
because
it’s not what you see
in that mirror
that you keep
locked away
out of the fear
that i will
somehow
contaminate your space

where’s my safe space?

i had a place
once upon a  time
but then you came
to invade
took credit
for my work
reaped the rewards
of what i made
and claimed
i had
no right

fuck you

and your privilege
too
