I choose humanitarianism over patriotism.
I choose the Earth, as a whole,
Over divided countries with invisible lines,
And symbols used to separate those divides.
I choose to open my eyes.
I choose to see through the lies.
I choose to be a voice of changing these ties
And tearing down the disguise.
I’m pouring black ink on the whitewashed times.
I’m wringing the blood out of idolized signs.
I refuse to be just a silent pantomime
Marching in line to celebrate the crimes
Perpetuated and sustained by a color coded design
Of archaic and ancient minds.
