So many words are spewed about
So many syllables are given out
This one says you should say that
That one says you should use this format
So many demand justice and revenge
So many scream inequality must end
This one brings a torch and a brick
That one brings a hand that constricts
How does this violence bring harmony to souls?
How does this hatred bring peace to console?
Can’t you see the only answer is unified prayer?
Can’t you see the only action is our hearts stripped bare?
May we search deep within for the sin that lies dormant.
May we recognize the enemy of the cross is our torment.
Our battle is never because of my skin color or yours or because of a simple nod.
Our battle is always with the one who steals, kills and destroys the children of God.
