The victim

When will you stop playing
the victim and be a person
of worth, able to stand up
and say that this is enough
and you want to see change?

None of these words that
utter from your mouth are
worth anything if you stand
in the shadow of your oppressor
and let the bastard win.

Stand up, I say, and wave the
victim goodbye.

Know your strength,
and wield your power,
and leave this life behind.
