I refuse!
I refuse to live my life like this!
I refuse to become another number.
Another name in the dusty yearbook in the library.
Another face in the crowd of faces.
Another unheard voice in a din of voices.
Another worker in the workforce.
Another…person…
Another…meaningless life…
Another number on that damned census paper.
I will become known.
I will not be a number
My face will be seen
My voice will be heard
I will control the workforce and have them work for me!
I will be amongst the other greats!
My life will have purpose!
I refuse to live my life as another number!
I will be the one writing the number!
