“There are people who don’t have money to pay their bills”
“Somewhere people are going to sleep starving”
“And you are letting this upset you…”
Does my privilege make me less human?
Granted I have been handed a life worth being grateful for
And not a day goes by when I don’t count my blessings
But I still cry like you,
I bleed like you,
I feel pain like you
Yet I am expected to go through life ignoring the feelings and emotions WE all have,
Just because I have something you might not have.
