Entitlement

I have a very high opinion of myself

It’s the only way I’ve been able

To stay alive, as well as

Try to understand

The world and my place in it.

I am convinced

That I am supposed to be doing something

Important. I suspect it will be

In media or entertainment

I am a force of nature

In so many ways

I should be dead

I should be alone

But somehow I’m here

Writing a poem

Overcoming and

Denying death by insisting

I’m worth more than this

I deserve better than this

It’s not entitlement

To know your worth

And insist that things

Could be better someday

If I had been

Assigned male, you might say

I am a visionary
