anger into hope

July 11, 2020

 

I had no time to Hate—
Because The Grave would hinder Me—
And life was not so
Ample I
Could finish—Enmity
Emily Dickinson

bullets bombs and mayhem
centuries of hate
liars on my tv
paid to complicate

swords into plowshares
anger into hope
we only got each other
and there’s nowhere else to go

the man behind the curtain
ain’t who we elect
greedy getting richer
so many lives are wrecked

swords into plowshares
anger into hope
we only got each other
and there’s nowhere else to go

always question Power
resist the exploitation
don’t listen when they tell you
to hate another nation

swords into plowshares
anger into hope
we only got each other
and there’s nowhere else to go
