A Part of Something New

Tue, 01/17/2017 - 14:21 -- Aleda86

I am a part of Generation Z and amending society


I wonder what waits for me after this inaguration

I hear voices in protest and anger

I see politically charged violence

I feel lost in a world so self centered


I touch the clammy fingers of all the victims

I worry as I come up into adulthood

I cry out for justice, for the weak and the silenced

I understand our world will never be at a cease fire


But I say that a stalemate is possible

I dream of a world free from war on the oppressed

I try to stand up and make a difference

I hope that someday that kindness will be welcome.
