Still Small Voice

A murmur from the crowd —
Raging awful sound

Cold and bold, growing louder
Stoked by fear uncontrolled —

Shouts of doubters who were sold
False narratives
Foretold —
Impending doom

Imperative truth among raucous
A still small voice still speaking veracity
To those who will listen

We The People

Resistance for a cause
Go the distance for a cause
Reject compliance
Refuse reliance
On unjust laws

Stand up for the weak
Defend the meek
Speak for the oppressed
And distressed
Be the voice they seek

Abandon a system that’s broken
Politicians say they have spoken
For you but their interests are more valuable
And that comes down to capital
Don’t fall for their cheap tokens

Resistance for a future
Go the distance for a future
Reject obedience
Proceed with expedience
From your mindlessly imposed stupor
