I Was A Machine, Don't Be Like Me

Bonjour, mon ami! How are you today?


I was a machine, don't be like me.

I was a machine that kept on going when everyone had cooled off.

I was a machine that kept on chugging when everyone had dissipated.

I was a machine that kept on huffing when others more privileged would laugh as if they were in on a cruel joke because I was learning for the first time (#Capitalism, #Neptism).

I was a machine and no one ever told me that I didn't have to be a machine.

My life does not need to be machining.


One day I looked up and it was only me (#Machine). Why? Why am I doing this? Why am I here?


Because they told me to be here (#WhoIsThey)?

Because this was the trail I was told to follow since birth (#AccordingToWho)?

Because this was the way my friends came (#WhereAreTheyNow)?

Because this is the path I was told to follow to succeed (#HowDoIDefineSuccess)?


I was a machine, don't be like me.

Machining was necessary for my parents to climb out of the Matrix (#SystematicRacism).

Machining was necessary to avoid deviation of any kind (#Assimilation).


Machining is the way of the past. I am not a machine.


I have unplugged my mind. I have massaged out the conditioning. I am not a machine because I have the right to define what works for me in this lifespan.


We have evolved (#TechnologyIsABlessing, #UseItWisely, #UseItForGoodOnly).


My parents and ancestors have beyond earned me the right to simply exist (#ThreeTimesOver). Live my life freely, fully, and drunk in love (#ForMe, #ForOne, #ForAll). They taught me to love unconditionally and so I do (#ILiveForYou, #ILiveForAncestors).


I was a machine, don't be like me (#TheMatrix).


Yours Truly,


(#MerryMarie, #XmasSprite, #ChristmasSprite)

Bonjour, mon ami! How are you today?! Refusal to teach is oppression. Some people don't know, some people don't care, and some people are evil to know that they can control people by refusing to allow
