“I swear to the Lord, I still can’t see why Democracy means, everybody but me.”

Equality cackles at me, for it’s nothing but a utopia for the rich, written on paper, nothing more

Our suffering is the source of their happiness

Representatives are my voice, my eyes, but they are not heard nor given a care in the world

For I am the invisible man, nonexistent, a statue that everyone passes by and no one sees

I scream with no sound and weep with no tears

For my voice has been taken and my tear ducts run dry

But I shan’t be a statue any longer!

I WILL be the change!

I WILL be the hope!

I WILL create the Promised Land!
