MY VOTEby Jeff RidgewayPicture of Jeff Ridgeway

They say I can’t vote

They say the decision is not mine

They say I don’t understand

I guess they think they’re being kind

I wonder what they would say or think if they only knew

That when they call the President “Our President”,

I want to Call him mine too.

If I never get the chance to Vote –

Pulling the lever, punching the card, or writing the name down.

I stay the same – dumb, misinformed, unchanged, unempowered.

That is what this world expects me to be.

But I want so much more

I want to be the most educated – the most informed – the most totally changed – the most totally empowered person that I can be when I vote.

I can make a difference and then I can say with pride,

“Not Yours,

not theirs,

but My President

because I helped put him there.”
