I want to be supported!
I can feel my body scream
Why is it so hard to feel supported?
Maybe because the system does not support me
Maybe because as a human being, a person who has needs, I am not supported
I’m not a fucking machine
I don’t want to be embarrassed about my needs, to ask for my needs,
to have my needs met
Hi, I am courageous, and I have needs
I am a hard worker, and I have needs
I am a compassionate freedom fighter, and I have needs
Can we still work together?
Can we still live together?
Can we still love together?
Is there space for me here? Anywhere?
I sure fucking hope so because I have gifts to give
But, I am tired of compromising my needs
Tired of being told I need to be something else
to make it
to be loved
It may be a scary road but I am not held by fear anymore
Not interested in nonconsensual bondage
Not interested in being a slave
A shell of a human body that just warms a spot on this Earth
Let my fire burn
Let my mouth speak
Let my body dance
Let me live a life that is worth living rather than plot my own death
