Self-Advocates Sonnet

This is one of the poems that I submitted to the Perspectives Anthology 2

Self-Advocates Sonnet

Shall I consider how my day is spent
in this land, far and great and wide
where I seek what others try to hide
examining where rules and ethics bent
twisted, reworded my nature present
while armed with truth, I speak to chide
too often, my voice cut off, silenced, denied
shouted down by demands for births mine-kin prevent
whilst ignoring human rights, the basics we need
another sigh of patience, I maintain to do my best
to advocate, create changes to the current state
of services, supports, implement at too slow speed
I tire, but have far to go before I dare to rest
For the sake of life, we cannot afford to wait
