They conquered the world
Walked upright
Went to places
Spent emotions
Built contacts
Proved their autonomy
Spoke in forums
Put pressure unknown
Bottled strengths
Exploding unaware
Breaking barriers
Creating new codes
In search of power

Beauty code reinvented
Polished with colonial fairness
Looking down on
Ordinary mortals
Unpainted ones of sorrow.
Walking on pencils
To attract centres of power
Have they really broken
Codes after all?
Can systems be broken?
Social laws of milleniums
Created for survival
Of species against wind
Beauty to match with power.

They went ahead
Achieved great dreams
Unbent strong will
Spoke, spoke, spoke
Fires of pain, anger
Ferocious and dangerous

Guided by men.

Don't laugh
It could be the beginning
Of Imagination.
