The Middle

Don’t need more naysayers

Echo chambers

Pointing fingers

Truth still lingers

But we are not listening

Unless you say what I want to hear

How did we get here?

More divided

By fear

And truth is

We have all been misled

By puppet masters on both sides of the ledge

“Don’t jump, don’t move”

“Unless I tell you, then dive

Face first and deep

But not in thought

Be sheep”

Time we stop fighting

Find a common thread

Sing into the darkness

Songs in the night

Drown out the voices

With anthems of hope

Let love ignite

The flame of compassion

Light up the sky

Overwhelm the darkness

Refuse to take sides

In the middle

Let’s Unite
