an unpopular opinion I have in times of crisis

He tightened his fist and shook it at the world

They lay suffocating beneath despairing sameness; proclaiming they can change the world

 

With a tap, and a swipe

Savage phantoms stole rest from those who did not give consent

We cry for our rights, we cry out of despair 

 

you were pressured to repost that weren't you?

 

They dreamt of a better tomorrow, an end to stop this madness

Open your eyes. 

Can't you see that there is no magic potion? How do you end a war with mindless bigots?

this is what it is.
