Today I Cried

20170121_102401Today I cried, not because I am hurt, because the world is.

Today I cried, not because I was denied, because my fellow humans were.

Today I cried, not because I do not have medical care, because others do not.

Today I cried, not because I did not have a choice, because once again females may not.

Today I cried, not because I can not marry, because others humans may not.

Today I cried, not because I do not understand what is at stake, because others do not.

Today I cried, not because I am unjust, because people in power are.

Today I cried, not because I do not protect the planet, because others do not.

Today I cried, not because I do not take responsibility, because the US President does.

Today I cried, because sometimes life is too much!
