All of my “shoulds” are what gives my body tone,
Than why, you might ask, don’t I have a sick set of abs?
because my tone is that of a resister,
a pare of opponents at war.
Every time I want to step forward,
to stand apart,
my body says I should stand down.
but, I find my extra strength and, I step.
the cost is high, yep, you bet
But the cost of inaction,
is to side with the “shoulds”
and I refuse to live, or oppress others, by that standard
