Assumptions

I do not like
football
Yet you talk to
me as if I do
Drowning me in
its boringness
Assuming I am
like you

Whilst politicians
tell us how to live
Thinking they
know best
No matter what
we say
Or how much
we protest

Then there are
those
Who try to control
other aspects
Of your life
Never listening
nor showing
respect

Whilst some push
their ideals
Forcing them onto
you
Whether faith,
race or religion
Fighting arguments
you may lose

I am not them
I am not you
I am me
Stop assuming
it otherwise
Through eyes
only you
see
