"A role of images" by Naomi Moreira ('19)

What do you want from us?

an image of pretention

docile, obedient, pure

is that what you want from us?

 

What do you want from us?

accept the  role of dependency

see your triumphs over our pain

swallow the calamities that we see.

 

What do you want from us?

pretend not to see that won’t changed

you don’t know what it is to be trapped,

stuck with this image is an enormous charge.

 

What do you want from us?  

be the image that we want to escape,

hearing your critiques without any reason

living a role of false images.
