It’s truly awesome
the reality our generation
is growing to realize.
No longer is the original majority
mumbling “we are all equal.”
instead our generation is standing up and saying
we need to be equal.
In the midst of The Man shrieking
“they drew theirs first”
we are rising and declaring
“color doesn’t define the value of human life”
We are announcing that
your anatomy doesn’t define you and
only you may define who you are.
Our generation will no longer allow
a 1600 year old book
that’s being misread and misused
to delegate who we are allowed to love.
Our generation is verbalizing equality
for those who spoke to quiet
for those who were not listened to
for those who are no longer able to speak.
We are the awoken generation
and it’s truly awesome.
