Curiosity becomes a whisper
and questions remain unanswered
WE are drowned in our own famine for knowledge.
yet helplessly OUR prism breaks.
and to whom shall WE tell OUR woes
when what is seen is erased from humanity’s own intellect
when Education that was once a right
soon became a burden on the conscious mind
WE are betrayed by what is called OUR "Key to Success"
and OUR reflected thoughts, ideas, goals are shunned by our own mirrors
and OUR silence voices become myriad of compressed hues.
and as one multifaceted color WE sing.
yet shards of a broken society
prick the finger of those who try,
the blood that is supposed to be a red is not a red
but a foreboding white.
