“Avoid words that sound worse than they are”

I am told to be who I am not.
I am not allowed to be who I am.
It might upset someone,
or it might offend so much
as to reject me.
To be left on the scrapheap
because they cannot understand
my human condition,
our human condition.
What a myopic vision of humanity!
