We know who we are

Interpreted by Sandra Cespon.

 "We Know who we are"

What did we find
when their voices were drowned?

Past struggles 
Have delivered us here…
Some say we have finally arrived…
That You and I are finally equal…
And yet…You still define me
with your stereotyped eyes…

But…What will they find
if our voices are drowned?

We are not planning to whisper…
We are not planning to hide…

We will not follow your trodden paths…
We will not obey your sick mind…

We know who we are…
We are your blood…
Your heart…
Your breath…
Your life…

We will not whisper!
We will not hide!
We will not follow your trodden paths!
We will not obey your sick mind!

We know…
We are who you are!

What did we find
when their voices were drowned?

Some say we have finally arrived…
That You and I are finally equal…
And yet…you still define me
with your stereotyped eyes…

(Xoanxo, 2019)
