Attempt to deny and defy it,
March about it, scream about it,
Shout about it, wail and flail,
Proudly wave your pitiful grasp of patriotism;
Pretend our laws don’t apply to you
or your privileged few;
Tweet your toddler-like fingers off,
Still won’t matter.
We’re not better;
We are more.
We’re all imperfect,
but we can admit it.
Our roots hold fast even in storms
Because we go deep down
We know deep down
We’re all intertwined.
And we are growing
Our shared future, even for you,
Like it or not, for all.
Soon you won’t matter;
A new day is dawning.
