Light your struggle


A celebration underway 

Yet the slaying seems here to stay 


How are we to live 

With those who die in peril ?

How are we to bring life into this world 

Hate and Ignorance abound 

Waiting for that sound

And feeling of hope


When she works till late

Bringing home that plate

Doesn't have to worry 

About getting home safe 

Does it make you tough to shoot for blood?

Would it make you tough to concede with love?

That gun doesn't make you a man 

It makes you a coward where you stand 

Pick up a torch and light your struggle 

Put down your anger it's a lonely muzzle
