Uprisings, protests, rebellion, civil unrest, riots
Are forms of criticism to political systems.
All require courage, guts, and (lots of) blood
In order to be heard by the powers that be, as they laze in bed.
The latter line their pockets using hand gestures
To acquire and spend their ill gotten gains,
While those vying for change use peace
And the strength of their vocal chords to be
Their delivery system for their opinions,
They are always loud, proud, stout, and ground
Out of strength of the lands they’re defendants of
Valiantly trying to overcome overwhelming
Odds to live honorably in their homes, driving,
Driving away those who wish to turn them
Into lambs for the slaughter, as they rebel
Against injustice, inequality, oppression,
Subjugation, and destruction of unique ethics.
They use muscles, ingenuity, and individual powers
To forward their needs, knowing that few are
Heard, appreciated, acknowledged, adapted
Into a system that favors only those who corrupt,
Avid for power, willing to encroach on others
To possess what they deem as ‘necessary ‘.
When will we learn that humanity needs
Its world community to survive any difficulties
Unseen, small, large or in betweens?
We need awareness, acceptance, and self-love
To promote healthy relationships among family,
Friends, peers, colleagues, and everyone else who try
To help in the development of each individual child’s
Character who needs everyone’s support
To feel safe to express his/her emotions
And beliefs freely without enduring oppositions
That are degrading, demeaning, or cause destructions.
