You and me are the same-inherently

If you silence me I do not surrender Because I have found my indomitable spirit within If you lead me I do not follow Because I may have to lead myself If you push me back I do not collapse Because I have gained my strength If you strike me I do not turn the other cheek Because my cheek has found limitations If you hate me I do not feel sad Because I have found you are funny If you do this and that to me I may resist allowing you But do not treat me like A lovable gentle one turns into a demon all of sudden But you know what I am the same one But never is the different one The same one with its power The same one with its voice The same one with its spirit The same one with its life But do not be scared of my changing Do not be panic about my rising voices Do not feel disappointed of my not being obedient Do not let your anger overwhelm you Do not be frustrated of my shining But calm down Let’s communicate Let’s negotiate Let’s cooperate Let’s love each other Let’s rise together There is no such thing You infringing upon my freedom or power There is no such thing One is superior or inferior to another All is born in the same planet Each life has its own space to flourish Thus, you have to learn About no dominance No coercion No oppression No hatred No maltreatment No difference Between us
