This country is a mess.
Promises of freedom for the few by
oppression of the many
taking hold of us,
with anger and a sense of injustice
overwhelming our senses because we know it isn’t fair.
of everyone’s right to live and be happy
because someone higher up says
some people don’t deserve that.
Stomping on the liberty of people they don’t like
for what? A sense of self satisfaction?
If you’re not a man,
you’re only good for sex.
If you’re not white,
you’re a criminal.
If you’re not Christian,
well, they’ll see you in Hell.
We’re told over and over that only certain kinds of people deserve this life.
And we sit here,
listening to the lies of the media
that tell us it’s all okay.
When a man promises
to make this country great again
by doing to others what Hitler did to my people,
I can’t take it.
I don’t know what to do
or how to help,
and this feeling of unease
of what our future might become
is driving me crazy.
Our country is a mess,
maybe too much to clean up.
