The oppressed are glorified
The persecutor is ensnared in wrath
Is defamation just?
Or is self-imposed oppression a blanket of security?
The weary are exalted
The powerful are feared
Is fear just?
Or is self-imposed agony a cure for self-loathing?
The broken are idolized
The prosperous are liars
Is the label of a “liar” just?
Or is self-imposed brokenness cultivating dependency?
I will no longer be a slave to oppression
I will no longer be a slave to weariness
I will no longer be a slave to brokenness
For if I am, I am a victim of defeat
I will fight injustice when justice is broken
