Revolutions Will Never Be Enough

Revolutions Will Never Be Enough

the, i am a strong person,
spoken word taught
is the latest trend
thrown and caught
it must be shown
after all in this society
we use it as a way to show,
how we have grown
we cheer, and whoop
as the words tumble out
defiance jumps through the hoops
being, ‘sassy’
and somehow bold
is better than human fatalities
well, so we are told
and we cheer some more
one person puts down the lover
and slams the door
the values we subscribe to
catch us short,
we will give out hate because that is fair
well, so we have been taught
power is mis-held
or misunderstood
and individual experience drowns in a flood
it is a world of revolutionaries
but i fear any revolution will never be enough
