Clover Poetry Series: Refusing To Feel Less Than Human

Clover Poetry Series: Refusing To Feel Less Than Human

My inspiration for "less than human" came after I went to an anti-Trump rally and returned back to school. I was feeling the energy of thousands of people rushing in my blood. I am a member of LGBT+ community and I was discussing with some of my POC friends about their experiences with discrimination. I was taking that energy and those stories and fueling it to my favorite thing: my poetry.

"less than human"

you tell me
you try and convince me
that i am less than human
because i was brought into this world
with a vagina
and that my genitalia
or my gender
could limit my love
you tell my friends
you try and convince them
that they are less than human
because they were brought into this world
with colored skin
and that their skin
could limit their humanity
you tell us
you try and convince us
that we are less than human
but we were brought into this world
to influence change
and grow empowerment
because we are the people
the people
of color
of LGBTQIA+
of women
of the oppressed
and we will not be convinced
