We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

I am 48 years of hope hoping for hope that things will eventually get better
I am almost a half-century’s worth of being sick and tired of being sick and tired and quite frankly I am sick and tired of it
I am desperate for purpose
 
I think fairness is a plate of food and a warm bed for all
I think people should be recognized and loved not discarded
I think an awful lot about living but I’m almost anxious to die
 
I want to make more of an impact not minimum wage
I want to make friends
I want to make a difference
 
I do what I can to improve my life and try to improve on others
I do not give up or quit
I do think I can make it though if only I’d get noticed
 
I hate the fact that I don’t count
I hate mirrors that look at me (most days)
I hate that I hate
 
I wish for drastic change (at least for 99% of us)
I wish I wasn’t me (most times)
I wish I would’ve wished for wishes (I just used up all 3)
 
I know it will get better though because it cant get any worse
(I know I’m wrong on that one)
I know you probably agree
 
I am grateful though
I am grateful for you
I am grateful for the 99%
 
I thank you all
I thank you for your service and your message of hope
I thank you for sharing the pathway to purpose
 
I am now on that path
I am being counted
I am…the 99%
