Clothe Yourself with a Vote -- an expression for the city to get out and vote. Oct. 14, 2020. 


Clothe Yourself with a Vote

By Rhea Carmon

Clothe yourself in your rights
Express the identity fought for by ancestors
To create a place where you could
Choose to speak
Choose to write
Show who you are
By making the decision to vote
Cast your opinion into the ocean of America
Let the independence of the moment
Create pride in yourself
And pride in your choice
No matter what it is
It's yours, its your voice 
Your right to express yourself
Color this world the way you see fit
Create art in your moment
Be the change you want to see in the world
You can be a catalyst 
To spark the reaction necessary 
To ignite the future
Break down barriers
Speak out against the issues
Make a world for the next generation to take
It’s not enough to make a meme
Share a post
Or Create a quote
You have the opportunity to post 
On a nationwide level 
Where are we headed
On this ship called My Country Tis of Thee?
We must fight for the liberty
Before we sink
Now is the time to speak clearly silently
No marching or signs
No rioting
Just flooding the polls with votes
Walk it in, mail it in
Do it early or on November 3 
Make it happen in 2020
Present or absentee
Take control of our future
Express the identity fought for by our ancestors
To create a place where you must
Choose to speak
Choose to write
Choose to vote
