I cannot sit here and unwrap this hatred,

Taste the blood and sweat of the innocent

Ignore the threads made of tears,

Smile, laugh and forget


I want to lay my life down

Pray prayers for the prey

Live life with intent

Break my heart for freedom


I’m desperate, lost

This is not some fad -

Breaths of life beaten down

If we just extended ourselves:


Righteousness could flow down

Love could fill the air

And maybe just maybe

We could be the generation 

To stand and to love audaciously
