How long will it take for us to find our voices?
How long will we be visitors in our own yards ?
How long must we be jailed ?
How long must we avoid the exploding star?
How long are we to our expedition?
How long?

Do we give up the rights to live ?
Does it makes us less humane ?
Why do we look at the truth and spit on it?
What has it become, building fences around our dreams?

How long is this walk?
How long must we bear the pain in our hearts?
How do we suffer at the hands of our own?
How long must poets write for them to listen?
How long are we…?
