I see my life in class

As a debate

People tearing me in apart in different directions, 

They are “rational”

When I upset them

I am “emotional”

Playing with the idea of power within a powerful institution

Yet when I, just a voice, defend myself

My life

I am scorned, broke the rules

Eyes roll, of course I would be the one to bring up _____

And they will happily choice to ignore it

Is it risky to challenge it angrily?

To defend my life entirely?

Therefore I will never stop

My life is not a debate
