Fight for Me: A Victory Song (#poem #conversationswithmyself)

Version 2 (Orig. Fight for Me)

Give me honor, not pity
Give me justice, not excuses
Fight for me, don’t feel sorry for me
Stand up for me, don’t watch me fall
Assuming I won’t get up, that I can’t fight for myself
That I won’t be victorious
And know this
That everything I’ve done has been out of strength, not weakness
Don’t assume
That I can’t stand tall
Or respect myself, most of all
Anything less and you would be wrong
This, most of all, is my victory song
