So Tired

I am tired of
the cliques
that surround us
Wherever we go.
The not fitting in,
the half-hearted hellos,
the excuses.
We are all humans
And deserve respect,
love, compassion.
Our lives matter
and I will not be
belittled, discarded,
or shunned.
I will look you
In the eye so you
Can see your reflection,
detect the shallowness,
notice the selfishness
That emanates from you.
