“Words Effect Change”

Now my hands are free from the chains,

my mind free from the pains and the games

of those oppressors and supremacists

who tried to take away my life’s emphasis-

my rights and my dignity were held in their reins,

I could not hold back the rage that ran in my veins

and so I discovered that knowledge is power

and words effect change.
