Under One Love

At about 3AM, I woke up from a terrible nightmare to realize the nightmare was all too real. And, as is often the way with writers, when I have strong emotions, it comes out in words. So here is my take on the US election:

Under One Love

unity-1767663_1920.jpgThere was proof in the night
and our flag is still there
But I can’t see it anymore
I can’t see it anymore
There’s still love in the world
I’m sure someone still cares
But I can’t feel it anymore
I can’t feel it anymore

This is our Vietnam
This is our Civil Rights
Do not go quietly
It’s time to put up a fight
Because all of these ‘isms’
and all of this hate

Won’t deliver us from evil
Won’t make us all great

We are the ones with the voices
We are the ones who are free
And we won’t take it anymore
We won’t take it anymore
We are the home of the brave
from sea to shining sea
And we won’t lie down anymore
We won’t lie down anymore

This is our defining moment
This is our day to shine
To take back this land
It’s yours and it’s mine
So put up your hands
And join them together
We are a nation, indivisible
Under one LOVE forever

    As president Obama said: “the sun will rise tomorrow” . We will continue to work and struggle for justice.
