Voting Picture

We are the youth
of today and of tomorrow
and we exist like long tapers
of unlit candle wicks;
fresh stretches of flammable fibre
swaddled and swathed in
the protective cocoon of wax
begging to be sparked

And when we ignite
we must not be afraid
to burn brighter than
the candles before us-
the stars will stare at our light
struck by the raw beauty
and the intensity of our flames
united in a blaze

That will let the world know
that it will not change us
we will be the ones
that change the world
