You against me,
And myself against you.
In another life it wouldn’t be so.
In this life it isn’t so,
But there are those who say otherwise.
Their voice drowns out reason,
Logic doesn’t play in their favor.
How can you reason with those who are unreasonable?
Forget it,
Save civil debate for later.
There are some who would pit us against each other,
Some that don’t understand your plight.
But those who don’t try,
Will never see the light.
The struggle is real,
There is no statement more true.
Many cannot see beyond themselves,
And blame others where no blame is due.
I do not blame you.
Liberal is used against me,
As though it’s a dirty word.
But I am not dirty,
For none are pure.
My intentions are for the benefit of all,
Of this you can be sure.
I wear my affiliation with pride,
My ideology is tried and true.
In the upcoming election,
I will be voting blue.
I am for the people,
Of the people,
Thus it must be so,
That I shall use my wisdom,
So those inspiring hatred are forced eat crow.
Fear plagues the world with the seeds of doubt,
Fueling hostility,
Giving prejudice clout.
I am not afraid of you.
You are like me,
For we are united in our humanity.
I will stand with you,
Please stand with me.
We will stand together.
In solidarity.
