Why hide your face from society?
Is it that grueling that you can’t withstand.
To crawl back and hide among the shadows,
To cast yourself away,

away from the likes of others.

Is it because you say you don’t belong?
Is there anyone who really belongs?
Who has the right to tell us to stay or not?

If I were president.
I would make them write a lot.

Lets rewrite the history of

the castaways,

the hidden,

the shadow people,
and bring it all to light.
Once again we’ll make all things,
