[poetry]we the people

we the people
we the children of the revolution
we betrayed ourselves
no evolution/revolution
when we refuse to recognize
some things don’t revolve around us
we hide our faces/names
fight with memes/intolerance
not our hearts/souls/minds
if we are quiet
we’re only waiting to speak
not to listen/communicate
we the people
keyboard warriors all
screaming into the void
not caring if anyone hears
discommunication in miscommunication
masked as mass communication
a cacophony of voices
drowning each other out
even our own
we the children of the universe
afraid of silence
afraid of words not parroting our own
afraid of everything

step back
step up
face the fear
embrace freedom
from what we’ve let ourself become
we the people
