Just as bad

I did not wrong you,
Nor did my elders
Wrong yours.
Yet you judge me —
Holier than thou.
Resenting whoever reacts
It is no longer
Acknowledgment or justice
You are after,
The cause no longer matters —
Be honest,
Don’t dilute yourself.

The spotlight’s been on you
For a while
And many wrongs
Have been righted.
I know, it could never be enough.
And yet, the bottom line?
Now that you got your attention,
Created awareness,
What do you do?
You’re picking a fight.
Does that not make you
Just as bad?
