I don’t believe in you.

I don’t believe in you.
Being honest
as I release those words
a fear resides within me.
What if I’m wrong?
And I think
oh well
I don’t believe in you.
Even if you do exist
I don’t have faith in you.
I don’t have faith in your choices.
I don’t have faith in the desires
you’ve created
and I rather not bow down to you.

Instead I believe in humanity
stripped of the politics
stripped of religious affiliates
stripped of gender roles
stripped of stereotypes
stripped of the cash
stripped of the clothes that cover us
and I invest in people.
I invest my words
I invest my brain
to opening the compassion
that I’ve lost.
Broken by the news
broken by our rules
and broken by our hate,
I know we can find
a solution
that connects
and breaks us free of our chains.

I bow to us
living down here
and I say I’m willing
to be kind
and I’m willing to invest in you
and I hope your willing to invest in us
and break the chains
bounded around our necks
by whomever is lurking over us.

Thanks for reading.
