You Talk About HarmonyPeaceLove

You talk about harmonylovepeace
While I starve upon these goddamn streets
In your US cities, Venezuela , Africa and the Philippines
You buy your mini McMansions
Cram them full of throwawaylifecrap
While I sleep in the elements
Cardboard boxes are
My home
You are snuggly cozy in Winter
And cooled nicely but in the Summers
Fierce heat
I am scorched by the sun
And frozen
chilled to my bones
nearly not
Surviving the cold

You talk about harmonypeacelove
In your church
In your pew
The stench of your hypocrisy
Outstrips my lack hygiene
Sitting here on the street
Reaching out my hand
Saying “brother can you spare me a dime”
You look
Over
Under
Up
down
Past me
As if I am part of the sidewalk
The scenery

You talk about lovepeaceharmony
As you pronounce women to be
the “ gentler sex”
Weaker
More prone to hysteria
And fainting
Please pass me the smelling salts
Come on now let’s get real
I am woman
And equal to you
I have earned this badge of freedom
Of respect
After spending a lifetime fending off your advances
Your condescending attitude
That I am less than you
Or even worse
When you use your superior strength
to beat me into submission

You can keep your harmonypeacelove
Put it where the sun don’t shine
Until you understand that harmony
Is collaborating through this life
That we come to agreement as equals
I no lesser than you
Until you understand that peace
Resides hand in hand with compassion
That it permeates our beings
And culture with calmness
Until you understand that love
Is sacrifice and giving the very best of ourselves
To each other
