a Poem by Raquel Swann
The Revolution is upon us
it has been for some time
Some of us are just waking up
to a new world, and are surprised?
The friends you thought were on your side
now fight for a cause that doesn’t align with ours
A side that preaches hate and prejudice
just as deadly as bullets from a gun
Foreign terrorists have no need to intervene
We are doing the damage from within
Like a virus taking over a healthy cell
it’s spreading and will be terminal
if we don’t treat it.
The remedy is love
Who has any left to give?
Who has the ability to fight?
Have we lost our way?
We must battle for our way of life
People must be allowed to live as they see fit
within the confines of the law, of course
The last time you looked at social media
you saw it too, didn’t you?
Family, neighbors, friends
heading for the exits
Working for hate
The devil would be proud
His master plan has begun
Love always has a way of winning, they say
this time, I’m not so sure
It’s going to take a lot of love and understanding
The Revolution is here
