Without cause, teachers, classmates, and neighborhood kids mocked at my pitiful station of poorness and entrenchment in painful shyness, calling me dreadful names that chipped away at my soul.
At my first job as a hairstylist they sentenced me to their delusions of what this occupation represented, it was because of this evil prejudice, I suffered and quit.
Then again, as a legal secretary they postulated I was too attractive to be so highly skilled, but it was my stanch refusal to glorify the lawyers that led to many departures.
In actuality, my New York intonation, look, and demeanor unjustly characterized me. All these outward inferences never let you know the slightest bit of about me.
I have respectfully pleaded my case, demonstrated good faith, and absolute innocence. Though these nonsensical matters are no longer a subject they continue to hold it against me.
Their verdicts were biased with no standard of proof, so my freedom and sovereignty were non-existent without any relief in sight.
Unfailingly, I’ve always held God’s beings in the highest regard, causing perpetual sadness and disappointment. Thus, I remain a hopeless victim, from those who sought to harm me for No Just Cause.
I’ve been a pro se petitioner in all matters of my life. Nevertheless, they implacably refuse to acquit me of these wholly false and distorted allegations.
Today, I have just cause to be wary of their perverse ideas, dishonesty and ill-conceived standards. As I barely stand, trying to keep my head up, they continue to hold me in unqualified contempt.
Regardless, the childhood trauma and tragic incidents that left irreversible damage, I cry, a body wracked in pain and disrepair, nevertheless, they persist in attempts to dismiss the documented facts.
Because, I was intensely, persecuted for so many decades and always found to be guiltless but merely detrimentally naïve, it is my contention that these erroneous incriminations will never cease.
Still, society has handed me down a life sentence of injustice, bias and prevarication with respect to all factors of my life. I’ve been caused irreparable harm by their unwarranted ever damaging criticisms.
Although, I remain imprisoned by irrationally obstinate hypocrites, I have uncompromising trust that on the Final Judgment Day GOD will show His most Powerful Exoneration towards me as I’ve shown mercy to all others.
