Life is All About You

Time has reached this point

We can never turn back

Convenience shields our eyes from

Atrocity and devastation

From within and around

Certain truths attack

A fair chance to live life well

With warmth and celebration

Many lose their lives in this place

To injustice and

Casual desecration

*

From my perspective

It’s easy to unpack

Convenience to be despised

I try

Reciprocity and appreciation

But within and around

Certain truths attack

A fair chance to share life well

With warmth and celebration

Together we lose true equity

to Injustice with

Demographic suffocation

*

I am no one

To many

But I know about you

I heard what happened to you

Life is about you

*

I am no one new

But I know about you

I hate what’s happening to you

Life is about you

*

In the land you live in

Save your faith and never give in

Push for peace

All around you

It will seem so hard to do

Strive for health

And to be you

Life is all about you

*

If my ways have hurt you

I hope that you have kept track

Convenient are the lies

Oblivious toxicity and

appropriation

From within and around

Certain truths attack

A fair chance to live life loud

With warmth and celebration

Many of us have lost truth in this place

To injustice and

Casual allocation

*

In the land we live in

We must never give in

Push for peace

Far and true

Find hope in what you do

Nurture strength

And be you

Life is all about you
