Years …


its taken years

but they did it


from my earliest memories

right up to today


everyone I know

everyone I dont know

looking at me

like Im a


teeny, tiny, little thing

whose thoughts

whose words

whose works

have no worth

are beneath notice

are unworthy their contempt


so long Ive heard this

seen this, felt this

fought this

unrelenting assault

on me

to no avail

that I

think I could believe

they might be right
