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




Music: Phil Collins - The West Side
