FYI: If you read my annotated bibliography, you can see that my first idea was to do an animation and I was working on until I deleted it by accident. I was working on it on my phone. So, instead of giving up. I decided to make a video using the only clips that was left of my animation. This video is very short, however, you really have to pay attention in order to understand the meaning behind it. Of course, there are points that are very obvious, but the more you pay attention the more you'll understand. I don't really want to explain it because I believe that it would be better if everyone had their own interpretation of what it could possibly mean, but I'm going to explain what it means to me. When I refer to levels, it could mean nearly anything. Money, race, gender, etc. However, when I wrote this I initially thought of money. I wasn't born into a wealthy family and when I was younger, I always felt that that was holding me back from being successful. However, when I continued to write the "poem", I began to think about race and how my upbringing was effected by it. So then I started to became my misfortunes on the government not my race.
