Oppression Isn’t 

| 1 Comment

Oppression isn’t necessarily

Suffering day in and day out

Oppression is

Numbing yourself so you no longer suffer

Oppression isn’t just

Losing all the battles you fight

Oppression is

Choosing not to fight those battles in the firstplace

Oppression isn’t necessarily 

Rejoicing in having a voice 

Oppression is sometimes 

Finding silence more empowering 

Oppression isn’t 

One thing, with one manifestation 


Has many faces

Oppression isn’t necessarily 

Something others can empathize with

Oppression is sometimes 

Too personal to share
