The Young Revolutionaries

March 30, 2018

 

Our unjust society has created an entire generation of revolutionaries 

 

Triggered by the economical, environmental, social, and political burden that they carry

 

Not of their own creation 

 

But by consequences that were passed on to them by previous generations

 

On March 24, 2018,  in Washington D.C. 

 

The people marched

 

Fathers marched

 

Mothers marched

 

Brothers marched

 

Sisters marched

 

They marched for those who have become involuntary martyrs

 

Not because they had a political agenda but because they were maliciously slaughtered 

 

7 children and teens are killed by gun violence on a daily basis 

 

But statistics don't remember faces 

 

They don't project the pain and grief that follows 

 

They don't break your heart to the point where your soul feels hollow

 

They don't store the fading memories of your child 

 

Like the time when your daughter was a baby

 

and looked at you the first time she smiled

 

The people long for the day when America no longer has to compromise

 

 with an inhumane nonprofit  responsible for its demise

 

The children have begun to mobilize 

 

A change is inevitable when time is on your side 

 

These young revolutionaries will reignite liberty's torch with their spoken truth

 

The definition of justice in America will be rewritten by today's youth

 

Come Take A Walk With Me
