Sitting in a dark abyss
Paralyzed with fear and doubt
Of the unknown
Bouncing and blocking out
Rival forces seeping within
Mocking and moaning
Laughing aloud filled with hatred
Ready to pounce on any glimpse
Of weakness and fragility.
They feast on the fatness
Of opportunistic unity of the
The poor, afflicted, and oppressed
Without regard of decency and decorum
Constantly creating division
Playing mental games and breaking Emotional boundaries.
One voice tears through harnessing
Strength, resilience, and aptitude
Connecting their relational language
With those of similar feelings wanting
Change, justice, and freedom.
The culmination of their voices
Causes others to take heed
Wanting the same for themselves
Merging collaborative efforts
Creating grandiose gestures
Of attitudes not ceasing.
As one, these voices continue
Breaking down barriers
Marching as one
Inspiring the younger generation
To want more and more.
Walls crack and split open
Only showing a brush of light
For those desiring peace of understanding.
