This Country

I’m tired.
I’m tired of feeling rejected.
I’m tired of fighting to do what I want.

I’m tired of being in a country.
I’m tired of being in a country that rejects me.
I’m tired of being in a country that rejects all of me.

This country rejects my religion.
This country rejects my artistic self.
This country rejects my gender.
And the worst part.

The worst part..
Oh gosh.
The worst part is that this country.
This country that rejects me.
Is my birthplace.
It’s my country.
