This pain is too much to carry on my shoulders

A country, a world burdened with hate

I see it, I hear it

Their mouths spewing judgement

Hypocritical minds unscathed

But the pot must keep churning

to melt their uncultivated views

There is no beauty in this silence

I must scream out 

This leader does not define me

My compassion does, my community does

We must give birth to change

Stand together in solidarity to break down

these walls built from hate

Make this stigma disappear

My bones ache for the oppressed

THEY ache for acceptance

Accept different, accept the struggle, accept humanity
