Stick a Fork in Me, I’m Done-2014

I’m done being quiet

I’m done being calm

I’m done looking the other way

and saying nothing’s  wrong

I’m done with the heartache

I’m done with the tears

I’m done with the madness

slowly changing me, while trying to hide my fears

I’m done with the ignorance

I’m done not finding out why

I’m done letting others do it for me

and learning nothing because I didn’t try

I’m done with the hate

I’m done downplaying the love

I’m done with the bullying

squashing, tearing, destroying, the pushes and the shoves

If you’re like me

and you’re done, too

Then here’s something We Can Do

Try patience, kindness, giving and empathy with a dose of gratitude

While I may be done with some things,

It’s clear to me that part is true

I’m not done with acceptance and forgiveness

I’m not done with Me or with You

And when you see someone else stand up

and begin to speak for themselves anew

Don’t be afraid to listen to their words

For they flowed from their heart to their lips straight to you

Embrace, Discuss, Parlez and Remark

For those ideas, feelings and thoughts all ring true

Listen, Consider, Tune In, Hear them out

Be done with fear and angst and begin to truly, truly Be You, too.
