Other People Do Not See You as Human – Written Friday 3rd September 2021 (Aged 46)

Other People Do Not See You as Human

people do not see you as human
just as those –
who abused them
did not see them as human
and that,
that is how is carries on
they try to convince you
that you,
you must be in the wrong
and that you have to take their blows
hoping, that the emotional bruises –
do not show
and apparently,
apparently this is my job
and now,
now i do not know
i sit here trying to repair myself
wondering when the feelings will go
