It’s Still Happening

Movements push through closed minds,

Walls put up, tear down.  For hate is easy,

It takes effort to love.

I’ve seen tears burst through floodgates

With fear leading the brigade.

I’ve seen others smug

My words of advice: be sincere in kindness.

Speak with a heavy heart,

You love the cause, now see the effects.

I’ve seen all people react, how will you act?

Raised fists staring at the sky as freedom rings,

Peace brought together upon God.

Different fists hold the nooses,

For nightmares no longer apparitions,

Dreams that haven’t been put to rest.
