Convicted

Treacherous fingers of discontent 
Threaten to strangle my dreams 
And stifle my right to existence. 
I stumble over vicious words, 
Fueled by spite and the rage 
Of misinterpretation, 
Designed to challenge my intent. 
I was summarily dismissed, 
Labeled a fraud, 
And relegated into obscurity; 
Judged guilty of a crime 
I did not commit. 
Yet, I remain loyal 
To my convictions 
As I expose myself, 
Welcoming the scrutiny 
Of those who would not 
Understand me; 
Steadfast and devoted 
To honoring the truth 
In perpetuity.
