The hand that holds the pen writes the history.

This can be both empowering and scary,

Because it is a singular privilege to

Write and live life twice.

What of the underprivileged? – 

The biggest luxury for these is Time:

Those without a quill or the time for scribbles.

Is their story less critical?

No, it is more so, because

The pen of the favored class writes a

Favorable history,

Covering centuries of injustice with half written stories, 

forgetting the cost of

A privileged few on the rest of society.

But if authentic bottom lines are historically lacking,

Then I will give you mine:

Truth extends much deeper

Than simply not telling a lie.
