\\\"We all have one wing, but together we can fly away\\\"
- Dream On, Dreamer

We wake every day
A skewed life misted and hazed
Forced to march through
A life we will not follow

By this time we find uniqueness
In each of us
Hoops of standards we still face
Lines more complex than lace

They tell us “your brain is not developed till you are 20”
Well, we have already learned plenty!
We know our hearts
Do not deprive us

A failing system
Just a repeating rhythm
The statistics prove it again and again
We live in a broken nation

I am not a robot
I have human thought
We each are individuals
Stop putting us in the same spot

The author's comments:
Recently the corruption and indoctrination of government and other systems have been on my mind. My concern for justice on these issues inspired me to write the poem.
