History is made by those who have been robbed,
but it is written by thieves.
The history of tomorrow will be different, you see.
Because it won't
                                                                   exist.
Because they won't
                                                                   listen.
Because they are
                                                                   greed.
Because we are young,
                          and we fight
Because they are old,
                         and are blind
                                                               by choice.
If I am wrong,
and the history of tomorrow is written,
it will have been written by those who lost much but
Who rebuilt
                                                                  For her.
Who listened
                                                                    To her.
Who survived
                                                                Through her.
