To be oppressed,
their must be an oppressor.
Self, my most victorious oppressor
Na, privileged is more like it.
Grace if you really want to know the truth.
Educated on the Governments dime,
each day is borrowed time.
Unmerited love from up above.
I turned my back to the light,
darkness consumed me. Though,
the light was near, I chose to live further in the fear.
In desperation, sinking into the night,
I cried out for the light
Returning with a flash,
Each day I awake to the light once more.
I am privileged with time.
