The sun is not rising anymore

When the sun rises,

I close my curtains to block out the light,

My habit does not ask me to be open nor to change,

It lets me get stick to it until I get sick of it,

I saw many sunrises with different shapes, but every time I brought down the curtains to let them in, a part of me goes away;

my trust, my self-esteem, my beliefs, my freedom.

Only two things stay, my humanity and my curiosity to find out why this is happening to me ..

Why every time I open up it hurt?

Why people that I was proud to call best friends intimidated me?

Why someone with a gifted birthmark should be suspicious or taken as a sign of rebellion by police officers?

Why people who cry for diversity on television news are the most insociable in real life?

Why the government instead of protecting people are dividing them?

Why do women abide the worst for so long to dramatically come out of the closet?

If you have an answer to all of these questions, then you will have a clear perception of why I keep my curtains closed,

You will acknowledge that even with open curtains, the light will not enter in,

The sun is not rising anymore.
