The Born Free Society

To the world, we live in

I was born free, so let me be freedom.

In a world beyond recognition

I was born with sight, so let me witness change.

To the world stained with bloodshed

I was born human, so let the only blood I see be that running through my veins.

To a world divided by xenophobia

I was born as African as my tribesmen, so let me remain unclassified.

To the world feasting on dictatorship

I was born aware, so allow me to re-educate you on democracy.

To the world demonized by social media

I was born enlightened, so let my wisdom click into authenticity.

To a world governed by sexism

I was born in this form, so let my soul define its purpose, not its gender.
