A Plea For Awakening
What if the one you look up to
Your sworn defender
Behind his smile is an evil soul
Seemingly sweet words to unify and bind
But really, to mask and hide a future that’s bleak
Amidst the wailing, blood of your fellowmen flowing
Will you not think?
Will you not question?
Will you not fight?
Continue to be blind to what you perceive to be kind
Despite the fallacies and darkness there
Your silence, you bear
Will you not demand for respect
For their rights that’s akin to your own
When will you wake?
When will you understand life’s worth?
Life is precious beyond worth.
