I Matter

I felt uncomfortable with your assumptions,
With the words you put into my mouth,
And the labels you placed on me.
Don’t think for a moment you know
The depth of my pain, the intensity of my anger,
Or the bewilderment of why.
Sure, you can help me find clarity,
But it should come from my perspective, not yours,
Because I don’t see the world from your experience.
I see it from mine, and as we discussed today,
I matter.
