They say history repeats itself,

And damn were they right

I try so hard to be happy in this crazy life

Avoid the news and drama

Pretend like everything is okay

And I’m sure that’s unhealthy

But I open my eyes and this world

Is burning both figuratively

And literally

We are surrounded by fire

Our voices extinguishers

But they only go so far

My body has more laws

Than a gun,

My life is less important

Than a fetus,

Seeing this world how it truly is,

Is sickening

Feeling unheard,

And like it’s only going to get worse

What am I to do

I want to close my eyes,

But I need sight to fight

And that is all that we can do
