The pride I love

Nylons stops me from breathing
Yes I am suffocating
But please do not unwrap me
To share pictures, you saved me.

I am trying to unlearn
A few things that I have learnt
Like how not to be so kind
To all sorts of humankind..

Who see all benevolence
As something fishing and thence
Poison the minds of the gods
To increase setbacks and odds..

I rather die in silence
Than open up to serpents
Who act like rats in the dark
Devouring me more than sharks

I rather suffer indoors
Than go begging neighbors
Who will announce with speakers
That they are my providers.
