Hineni, Here Am I

I couldn't find a song that really fit with this poem, but this was a unique presentation that stood out. The poem is mine, and not nearly as spiritual as I wish it were. But maybe the combination will inspire you today.

I am here.

I am here
Even though society does its best to erase me.
I'm good for nothing, or so they say.
I don't deserve a roof over my head.
I don't deserve to be taken care of like a "real" person.

Why do I make them so angry?
Why do they blame me for being a victim of my body?

If I disappeared tomorrow, how would it change their lives?
It wouldn't.

I'm not going anywhere.
They can't erase me.
They can't pretend I don't exist.
Not anymore.

I've found my voice
I'm not afraid to use it.

I am here.
