Fighting, screaming

Shouting hate

Protesting for rights

From morn till late

Chaos burning

In people’s hearts

Wanting revenge

For lives ripped apart.


This isn’t the way

It’s supposed to be

Love and compassion

For you and me

Where colour isn’t seen

And love fills the hour

Where unity, respect

Override power.


Where people are safe

And protected from wrongs

The world in turmoil

Singing a sad song

But sooner or later

Justice will be done

And peace will reside

In everyone.
