Double Dare

You smirk
You tease
Trying to hide the fact
That you don’t understand me

You will never know
The joy of opening a book
And meeting old friends
TRaveling the world
While standing still

You will never know
The passion I feel
The passion to do
What can’t be done
The need to right the wrongs
Of an injured world

You will never know
That beneath what you see
Is a human
With human thoughts
TRying deprestly to be someone with self respect
And to gain your respect

So I dare you
Double Dare
Triple Dog Dare You
To look up the the word “empathy”
To attempt at seeing the world through my eyes
Try to get to know me

I dare you to experience Faith
As I do
I have Faith that someday you will see
Me for what I am
A passionate, hopeful, slightly naive girl
TRying to make sense of an injustice world

I love this. I could feel the force in the words when you say I DARE YOU. This is awesome.
