Paying the Price 12.8.09

Excuse me- is there room
for more than you?
Is there room in here for me too?

Can I take a seat
and stretch my legs and
take up space
and call this home?

Or will my every word
be censored,
if not according to
your standards,
every move monitored
with your disapproving glare,
anything you find absurd
dismissed with that roll of your eyes

Will I have to pay for every inch
of space, and
apologize for being who I am
Is there room for more than you?
Is there room for me too?
