"Some of you may have taken history or civics classes that outlined the freedoms one expects in a democracy. At the heart of those freedoms is choice... With an affirmative choice, all democracy vanishes."


I have lost…
my appearance.
Hollow caverns lurk beneath
once-sparkling eyes.
I have lost…
my laughter.
A hyena yelp, tinged
with the aftermath
of insanity.
I have lost…
my spirit.
Plodding dejectedly
about shards of rocks and glass
that are hopes and dreams
in disguise.
But one thing,
I have not lost.
I still have
my words.
With my words,
I can fight a dragon.
With my words,
I can win a war,
and make my own
Happily ever after.
I may have lost it all,
but not my words.
