See, people like me,
from day one,
have felt like some unwelcome side effect of a pill
that was supposed to make them feel so good inside
it deteriorated their entire selves
in exchange for a brief moment of pleasure,
And people like you have made people like me feel worse
for decades after that
and even now.
Because, see, we as a society have convinced ourselves
that the inside of a mailbox
or something that has been dead for 30 million years
is more important than the pulsing inside of a
and her soul.
Daughters of the universe, be strong.
If my daughter ends up
in jail for any length of time,
I want it to be the result of her standing up
for her beliefs
unafraid and unshaken
by the foolish screams around her.
This is something that I understand.
How awful it feels
to lose your community
because you have done
And then I will know what to say
Because you, in your irrelevance,
your lack of perspective,
your lack of vision,
scribble your judgments
and your hatreds
onto rectangular scraps of paper
and you take your words to the bank
and you pull them out of your
but I know from whence they really came
just around the corner
and you take your words up to the counter
but you can't cash that check, baby.
It's going to bounce.
Now watch me do the same thing.
