we are the cure

There is so much sadness in the world

 

What will it take to heal

When murder Senseless murder

Is committed every day     

 

Genocide Is in every corner Of this planet

Look around you

Look

 

We ignore those who need us- (Unless there is something in it for us,

Or it’s the “right thing”

Instead of doing The Right Thing,)

-Aren’t we all human?

We all have beating hearts

In our chests

 

Why are we silent

When our hearts beat so loud?

 

We can heal

We can help

We can save

 

We are not trapped  in our lives,

Gender roles

And religious ties

Do not mean we are stagnant

 

We are humans

Diverse

But the same

We all taste pain and cherish love

Just as we are instruments of war

We can be tools of peace.

 

 

Look around

The world is full of sadness

We are the only ones

Who can say

 

 

“Enough. “
