Love Warrior (Oxymoron)

Beneath the shouting
I hear the stillness

The voices silenced
by fear
by anger
by hate

I see them
crouching
hiding
afraid

Eyes lowered to the ground
just getting along
No sudden movements
just getting by

And those of us
who don’t know these things directly
may no longer be silent

May no longer only say,
I am with you.

We must get our boots on.
And fight.
