Ignorance. Apathy. Prejudice.
Understanding. Justice. Unity.
It is imperative that my people relearn these concepts.
They are more than mere words; they are attitudes, behaviors, worldviews...
They can destroy whole civilizations or rebuild them.
They can corrupt individuals, or enlighten them.
They can cause wars or lead to peace.
-Megatron, "Exile"


Who are you?
I may never know.
Your face is shadowed
By the mask you show.

I’ve watched you dance,
Hidden in twirling color.
You humble the music.
You dance with no other.

I hear you not
Amongst the laughter.
From you I hear
No meaningless chatter.

With no hint of fraught
You hold your own.
In this masquerade
You stand alone.

So who are you?
I will never know.
You remain concealed
In a mask’s shadow.
