Xenophobia

Authentic,
I breathed out eccentricity,
Full of life, the purest of breath.

Chauvinistic,
You held yours in, afraid of judgement,
Rarely shaking hands with the unknown.

I spoke of positivity in the unconventional,
Hearing your voice spray of poisonous darts
Aiming to knock me down,
Calling out “taboo.”

I stood tall with shields of spirit,
Self love muffling my ears,
And I watched fear consume you,
As a thousand spiders fled your mouth.
