TO BE HEARD AMID THE MAYHEM

Hear me roar,
Here me howl,
Hear me tell
Tongue twisting tales
Of terror and tragedy,
Tense and tightly
Woven in apathy,

Here me roar,
Here me howl,
Here me cry
Torrents of tears
To tear through territories
Too timid to ask for comfort,
Too disjointed to unite minorities,

Here me roar,
Here me howl,
Here me slap
The truth on the table,
Cut the lies with a knife,
Drain the good from the bad,
Starve the sin to save the life,

Hear me roar,
Here me howl,
Here me laugh
At all the unbearables,
Rise above all that’s insurmountable,
Ignore all the incidentals,
Defy all that’s undefeatable,

Hear me roar,
Here me howl,
Here me sing
Of the hand that helped me,
Rejoice in the words healed kept me,
Be reborn through the ones who freed me,
Be remembered in the hearts that sheltered me.
