I know the world wants you to see us 
as something to pity. 
I know the likes of Taylor Swift and JD Vance want you to think we’re still in the dark ages.

But make no mistake. 


We are as submissive as we are barefoot
we are timid as we are uneducated 

we have a mouth full of  teeth 

ready to bite the hand that tries to feed  us the narrative that we are less because of where we come from.
