I have a tempestuous mind,

And it’s raining in my soul,

How could it be otherwise

With the world in a sinkhole?


Humanity is capable

Of subjugation and control,

Inflicting hate and poison,

Violence and vitriol,

Liars spread their falsehoods,

The online bullies troll,

The power-hungry use all means

To achieve their corrupt goal,

Terrorists reap horror,

And the alt-right crowds patrol,

And so my heart is weeping

And it cannot be consoled.


We must fight for what is moral

And we all can play our role,

This hatred can be beaten

If we resist as a whole.
