Enough (From Trump collection)

ENOUGH

The flames of fire from yesterday
Burns my face with shame
Weíd pretended that things were different
Deep-down they were the same.

Black rock below our feet
Our marching footsteps like a roar
This time we cannot allow
Things to go on as before

So we rise up and stand together
We need to end this forever
Itís been said
We all bleed red
Enough

Hating people for no sin
But the color of their skin
Is a cancer on society
That will eat us from within

Destruction swirling all around
So dangerous I want to leave
But I canít unsee what Iíve seen
We heard him saying, ďI canít breathe.Ē

So we rise up and stand together
We need to end this forever
Itís been said
We all bleed red
Enough

1. This does justice to

the nightmare that we are living in the evil trump land. Good job!

2. Thank you!

I think I wrote 5 or 6, trying to get something worthy of the moment. I actually think this is my least favorite of them all.
Iíll take a peek to see if I posted any of the others.

3. We are our worst

critics of our own art, poetry or writings. But the most important thing is to keep on keeping on.
