A Poem by Fanicia E.
"

poem based on a dream i had about two sisters

"
So much bitter anger 'cause you've been mistreated
"You don't deserve that"
You never heard that
Is it okay for a child to be unprotected?
Unloved
Unfed
And neglected?
The all consuming rage
And the righteous animosity
Are those the reasons why
You hate dealing with authority?
It isn't normal for a child to go hungry
And you're starving
For food
Love
Affection
For nourishment inside and out
And many think since you're a kid
You don't have any real clout
But you're real and you're valid so don't you ever try to doubt
The fact that someone loves you and hopes you make it out
Of poverty
Of infancy
Of whatever's holding you back
If people look at you with indifference
Then f**k them
Fight back
Your existence is a lifeline
Cling to it
Take hold
Prove those m***********s wrong
Show you have a heart of gold
I'm finding beauty in negative spaces
And there's a treasure to behold

searching for something they don't even recognise in themselves at times, needing to be someone, somewhere. When try to protect them, they turn away in know.all shrugs then wipe their cheeks when nobody's looking. They need your anger, your push and shove as inspiration - tis hard to find a jemmy when needing to escape from..
