Anarchy has fallen all around us.
Police brutality, this is our reality.
No freedom for all, oppression to those in a minority.
You are not worthy; how are these sentiments still believed?
Yet the protests are getting louder, the people are not standing for this.
Everyone is now involved in this. Can they really take away our right to breathe?
Do not be deceived by the lies, we are all prisoners in disguise.
There’s still division between the lines. Many hurting in the front lines.
It’s true most of us can’t understand the real suffering of those most targeted.
The level of bigotry ingrained in our culture is disturbing for sure.
Still something is astray with the way this is all unfolding.
The media is grabbing hold, this is now an important message to be sold.
Everyone is doing as they’re told. Isn’t this getting old?
Break free from the social engineering, this deceitful puppeteering.
Whatever divides us will be frequently broadcasted.
Whatever polarises us against each other will be forever highlighted.
Don’t you see divided we are weak and easily manipulated and controlled.
Disparity between our race, religion, sexuality, gender, the list goes on and on.
Hierarchy between our net worth and class, no accord to be seen here.
Do we really believe this is all an accident that our society is constructed this way, passed on the generations?
Remember hate does not vanquish hate and yet we speak as if we are the one who is righteous.
Is there any separation from the hero and villain, left and right wing, or right and wrong? They all don’t exist without the other.
Are we all a part of the one pulling the strings? How did we all fall for this, we left the age of Kings?
This system is broken, hear these words spoken, it’s time to move to one all inclusive.
Where all lives matter. Where true equality is amongst the chatter.
For united we are stronger, no longer being distracted by rhetoric keeping us from the big picture.
A place where love rules and compassion is the dominant message relayed to the masses.
Never forget there is always unity between all separation, connection between the division. For underneath we are all cut from the same cloth.
Beneath our skin we are all the same. There’s no one left to blame, so release the shame, and go forth hand in hand united together as one.
