Hi, I'm Mia. 

Welcome to my blog! Poetry and musings on life, marriage, and parenting - I write about it all. Except cheese. Cheese is gross. 

I Don't Belong Here

I Don't Belong Here

I Don't Belong Here - a poem for Charlottesville. | mia-sutton.com

**I wrote this poem last summer after the shooting in Orlando, but after the recent events in Charlottesville, it seems fitting to share it again here. Though, I relish the thought of never having to share it again nor have it be applicable to current life events.**


I don't belong here
With your hatred
With your negativity
With your exclusion

I don't belong here
With your violence
With your violation
With your vitriol

I don't belong here
With your weapons
With your harassment
With your damage

I don't belong here
With your hypocrisy
With your judgment
With your ridicule

I don't belong here
With your racism
With your sexism
With your skepticism

I belong
To love
To light
To life

I belong
To you
To me
To everyone

I belong
To peace
To camaraderie
To empathy

I belong
To common decency
To equality
To freedom
