Photography: The Cocoon Series by E.E McCollum
When you hurl insults at me
History is never void of mistakes…
Your words taint not my victories.
When you disparage me
The sleepless nights, the hardwork, they count…
I count, I am worthy.
When you aim at my pedestal
When you come at my family…
They raised a winner, a legend in the making.
When you judge my appearance
I wear a gold medal on my neck…
As you were.
Walk a mile in my shoes
See through my eyes
