how can you feed me if you don’t know what i like to eat?
how can you fight for me if you’ve never met my demons?
how can you speak for me when you’ve never heard my voice?
you’re almost there. you know i’m hurting, so you’ve come to offer me your excess
for that i thank you
yet i remain a charity case
i am less than a person since i am without a name
you know my condition and call me by my disease (poor, oppressed, homeless, marginalized)
love without a name is no love at all
so feed me. fight for me. speak for me. categorize me.
what’s more, be with me.
i’ll take your charity, but i desire your company.
