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
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
