The brightness will fade

And we will bemoan

The loss and then adjust

To a gray world

The song will be silenced

And we will wail

Longing for the music

Until we forget its sound

Women will be pushed aside

Sent back in time

And we will grieve their loss


Until the day comes

When we are are cast out

For the religion of men

And we have lost the voices

To withhold consent

We turn away

From discomfort

Deny reality for big money

Sell our souls

For narcissism

And birth a new nation

From the darkness

Of moral bankruptcy

It is time to awaken

Time to hold fast

It is the time

To look at the truth
