My hopes and dreams are the
same as yours – It’s just that my
existence is compromised – Lies filter
through on global screens – But you
don’t hear our muted cream screams –
Our culture crippled our humanity’s
stifled – As you watch us, mesmerized
These streets speak of horrendous horrors –
For us there are no more happy tomorrows.
