Illustration by Alé Mercado for Decide Me Poem

Why is my future dependent on political somebodies
who say they’ll do this or that for me?

I see thousands of people supporting hate
they say kill them, deny them that,
and rate the value of a person’s life on their money and white supremacy.

I see a country following Trump and Cruz
and I sit here, hoping, for my nation’s sake, they lose.
