I am inspired by the achievement
and admire the long-haul roar.
Every single system was set against you,
and despite it, you managed to soar.
I can’t pretend I understand the trauma
or the pain behind every shrill.
I don’t understand the synapses of drama,
and I likely never will.
I try my best to see from your shoes;
I employ empathy as much as I’m able.
I can see the reality of cruel, inhumane systems
is they serve enduring trauma to every table.
I wish I could wipe away histories
and correct the dominant-cultural lies.
I’m living a life that aligns with more-promising futures
and making choices that bake equal socio-economic pies.
I’m raising the future of informed voters
in a blended household of globalization.
It’s a human right to have an equitable playing field,
because we belong to the Sapien nation.
I’ve always been a composer at heart
of the written lyric and musical noise.
I can see the pain and the deliberation
that goes into every single choice.
Pain is embedded in legacy,
and that’s what fuels the long-haul run.
I’m eager to create a new motion-picture soundtrack
to The United States of Human.
