EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS

EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS

Did you vote this year?

I did. Too many people fought the good fight.

It’s my right. I didn’t earn it. It was given.

Given on the backs of men and women I will never meet

Resting in their graves. Lest we can walk

On the roads they paved.

Did you vote this year?

I did. Too many people fought the good fight.

It’s my right. I didn’t earn it. It was given.

Given because of love. Given because of equality.

Better yet for a lack thereof.

Given by those. Battered and bruised.

Cursed and abused.

So I ask again…Did you vote this year?

I did. Too many fought the good fight.

It’s my right. I didn’t earn it. It was given.

Given by those who didn’t ask to.

Nor by those who just wanted to.

But because they were forced to.

Stripped of their rights.

They fought the good fight.

To give me the chance to have the same right.

I didn’t earn it. It was given.

I am a Keeper of the right. It’s my inheritance.

So once again, I ask the question. Did you vote this year?
