Love is An Army

love over hate

To all of my people, it’s love I embrace.

Together, we can defeat all this hate.

Grab a hold and pull the youth along.

Kiss our mothers and tell them, “be strong.”

Stronger together than we ever are apart.

Embrace differences, that’s where we start.

We can rise because we know what it takes,

and in this harsh world, we know the stakes.

Hates breed’s violence, breeding more death.

Cease the fairy tales cause this is no Macbeth.

Revenge just creates a vicious cycle we get pulled in,

and so we pray that one day soon it’ll all end.

We can take fate into our own hands right now.

This is our world and the animosity, we will not allow.

Lets thank our mamas and get warmed up.

Come together, unify and form up.

An invincible army of love emerges from darkness.

We will not submit to evil, that I promise.
