We stand here, looking back
Seeing the hate of color
Mixed in with people’s differences

An intervention is needed
With hope for a lead change
Heading toward protection anew

We are blocked by a wall
Which leads to a new beginning
Away from a hypocritical downfall

It is by the decree of old law
Which is fought against daily
We continue our separate paths

But with the invent of a new law
Comes the hope of shining freedom
And the demise of separation

Perfect Omnitude

If I could meet her one thousand times over
It would be better each time
She would make me see the me in me
And I, the her in her

Again, I would do all for just her one wish
Would go to the end of reality to find her
If we’re ever torn apart

No worries, apart never shall we be
We are too similar, alike in every way
We are equal, everything about us is the same
Her likes are mine, and hers are my dislikes

Sometimes I just start to think
Where would I be without her
I’ve not known her a long time
But I can’t help to feel lost
When I think of what would happen
Without her

I close my eyes and imagine
A world without her
I cannot hide these tears
The sorrow it brings
This is what I think of, because
People have talked; said we would not last
But we have crossed many oceans already
We just have a few more

All the people said we will not make it
And they were right, for we have not
Yet sadly in part, I feel nothing
Because in my heart, I found more love
In another
