It feels as though I was sucker punched.
Walked into an alley and beat up with no knowledge or reason
I did not vote for that man
I do not support his agenda (as vague as it is)
I do not tolerate hate, xenophobia, or misogyny
I do not think fear is the way to motivate people
I want to be clear
this is NOT who I am,
nor does this man and his clan of huntsmen
represent anything I stand for.
He is not what so many of my immigrant forefamily
came seeking in America.
I am ashamed and embarrassed
not only in this but myself for not seeing
just how racist and sexist this country really is!
I am a dreamer and believer
and it just walked right past my sparkling dreamer eyes
