Demand power from the powerful
Demand fairness from the unfair
From the soul-seekers
The gold-grabbers
And the chaotic cannibals
Because “while some people are given a lit candle,
others need a match to light it themselves.”
You will overcome
And win the internal war
Accept the darkness
Accept the light
Accept the privilege to fight
