Why Shouldn't We

Why shouldn’t we,
Make the unhappening a reality unfold,
And speak out the truth not yet told.

Why shouldn’t we,
Become real and rise where we ought to be,
Glitter and shine like stars for every eye to see.

Why shouldn’t we,
Paint perfect pictures, the present to forecast,
Roar with loud sounds to wipe off the dust,
The dusty air that blinded our brethen’s souls,
Wipe off the outcast who made us bocome foes.

Why shouldn’t we,
Become what others couldn’t be,
Uproot our enemies coz they shouldn’t have been.
