Crown

Am I just that strange

For wanting so much change?

How can we stop looking for

A way to love each other more?

How can we just leave behind

Our kindred; put them out of mind?

Why must we so quickly fight

The truth and keep it out of sight?

How desperately do we all need

To shed the coverings of greed;

To silence all the strength of fear;

To seek the truth, invite it near!

For only when we open up

Can we rise up and then disrupt

The systems weighing people down,

Depriving royals of their crown.
