Take back our lives

Our happiness

taken from us

by those who dwell

all around.

We choose to stay

in hopes

of it getting better.

We have support

not everywher

not all the time

We love who we love

No Chance now

we must fight back

retrieve what was taken

Our lives

Our love

Our happiness

Our peace of mind
