You pushed them as you passed me
The pacifist
Your hate
Surrounding me in a whirlwind
Of your rhetoric
Your absence of empathy
Burning like torches
Tossed in a bonfire
As you cheered their oppression
You grip tight your salvation
Bullshit bound with nothing dogeared
You tore apart the Constitution
And laughed as they huddled in fear
You mock them for wanting equality
While they beg for peace
But I’m here now motherfucker
I’ll be the voiceless’ mouthpiece
I don’t share their history of pain
But I damn sure understand
These are my people
This is my country
This is our homeland
So while your hatred little hearts
Beg for war
It’s no longer you versus them
Cause I’m tired of trying
There is nothing more to discuss
Load your fucking guns
Ready your fucking fists
Cause now it’s just you
Versus all of us
"Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings - always darker, emptier and simpler."
Friedrich Nietzsche
