we use words to define
and want them to align
with our truth and our meaning

an example can be
what does exploitation mean to me?
and what was its original intent?

the common use today
is to take advantage of someone, something
for personal gain or unfair repositioning

but what if it was used
when definitions are perused
to simply mean utilizing or making good use of?

there is movement away
from a negative display
to a fresh perspective
held in the realm of
loving humans
where taking advantage of
no longer exists
