burdened by the duty

you sense it, you see things that others do not.
you try to be modest, you keep quiet.
you sometimes need to shout though.
you do not expect to be respected. you do not even ask for it.you do not give a dime actually.

a sense of duty pervades your very existence.
you need to speak your mind.
you need to take it out.
you are not the Pope. you are not Socrates.
but you have to speak your mind.
do you need to be proschematic? or do you need to keep the pretense?

Not any more.
you'aint gonna live for ever. It's your life.
your ideas, your prognosis. These are not yours. These are a gift.
You have to share these. You were given the chance to educate yourself.
this is a privilege that others did not enjoy.

I hate violence. I hate populism. I wish to exercise critique. 

Being a heir of birds, as Sachtouris wrote, I am obliged to fly even with broken wings.
