martyr

How many of you

Only look like you’re standing

On the mountaintop?

There’s a shift in the wind—

Blood is in the air ,

The stench of oppression.

No, you aren’t on a victorious peak—

You’re actually drowning,

A silent martyr,

Thinking you’re doing what’s right.

But love,

You’re worth fighting for.

How many of you

Are actually 

Drowning

Of your own accord?

INFP who names inanimate objects, loves to laugh, and is a proud old soul. You can often find her planning out her next crazy project, hugging books, or telling stories about her day that *may* be a little exaggerated.
