A world aslumber
is underwhelmed by violence,
religious righteousness and silence.
Corporations rule with dollars
like dog collars worn with
Politicians pull the levers
of our lives and hide their masters,
making money off disasters,
starting wars, filling streets with blood
and cries of children with no fathers,
their dreams aren’t dead but dying,
their mother’s milk still drying
on lips whose voices blend and rise
only to be pushed aside,
ignored and marginalized.
Is this the world we’ve strived for,
that soldiers gave their lives for,
that Martin marched for,
and forefathers forged forward?
A world awakened,
supported order formed from
human compassion and listening to others.
Accountability contains conflicts,
transparency shines light
upon the truth that binds us
and reminds us that for every action,
reaction is the norm, we’re creatures
of habit and instinct and urges,
we need nurture, we’re all in this world together
we all need purpose, to be heard
and observed, our nervous energy
diffused and focused, living examples
of the lessons mothers and fathers taught us.
Corporations and their politicians
don’t have to fear us,
just work harder to hear us, they are us.
So stop denying the dying, help heal the sickness
help stop the crying, no more lying, just striving
together is the way forward, it’s undeniable
connection is the key, unlock the doors,
embrace the world and what we’re all here for,
not to be created but to be reborn.
