I’ve been brushed aside so many times
Paused, dismissed and it’s frustration.
So many minds have attempted to manipulate mine.
Their pride won’t let them see me.
It won’t let them communicate
Or even think freely.
Forget that you don’t like the way that I am.
Forget that I smile as a way of showing you a kind face.
Forget that I’m qualified as much as you are.
Just remember the only few things that differ are on the surface.
What you see and what you feel shouldn’t be entertained by the history of your pride.
