Confronted By Those Who Assess

Today...
Anyone attempting to take away,
A right I have to vote...
Will not eliminate the number of thieves,
That have stolen a place to charade in public office.
To declare themselves advocates of a democracy.

And at one time I wanted to be first in line,
To pay homage to my ancestors...
Denied to represent themselves correctly,
With an upright and dignified identity.
That kind of oppressive stress from me has left.

I contribute on a daily basis just being who I am,
To then be confronted by those who assess...
My flair for arrogance is a pointless ego over-dressed.
Since where I live, what it is I can afford to give,
Does not appeal or compensate to warrant...
The doing of my flaunting with direct and placed steps.
And what I should do is address others correctly to impress.

Today...
Anyone attempting to take away,
A right I have to vote...
Will not eliminate the number of scheming thieves,
That have stolen a place to charade in public office.
Or the folks who perceive they are better than me,
Because of the 'things' they have to religiously worship...
I have long left behind me to leave with a valued peace of mind.
