For Those Who Refuse to Take “No” For an Answer

They stomped on us.

They belittled us.

They tore us down.

They did everything they could to make our lives hell on earth.

They kicked at us.

They ridiculed us.

They hated us.

They never knew us for anything besides the dirty faces and looks of disappointment.

They envied us.

They hated us.

They were scared of us.

We crept.

We crawled.

We stuttered.

We mumbled.

We fell.

We fell again.

But we got back us.

We refused to say no.

We gave.

We gave more.

We gave everything.

And then we gave even more.

We let nothing stop us.

And when we finally confronted those that had opposed us.

We forgave.

We were thankful.

We thanked those that helped shape who we had become.

And we still have yet to stop.
