can’t find no ammunition

Are people prepping for a war?

Ammendment 2 is on a mission

Droplets, masks, and distancing,

supplies of sanitizer

Go 10, 15, be wiser

Essential workers, thanks for being

infections waiting to happen

How’d we end up here, you ask?

Virus caught us hella-nappin’

Big props to those of you

who responded to your calling

Comfort, strength & hugs

to the loved ones of the fallen

We the people reached a tipping point

exploding in total rage

Looking back, you have to ask

have we ever been on the same page?

As witnesses to the possible

We were jolted out of complacency

and could no longer avoid

coming to terms with ourselves

to give advantage to some of us

and leave some of us behind

Fear of loss is the reason

some are married to this system

holding tight to privilege

and clenching us versus them

To act as if all is well

while oppression takes it's toll

was not an option for some of us

who decided to save the soul

of this country and ourselves

and the hope we hold so dear

that justice like a mighty stream

will water down the fear

We united around the country

and came together around the world

We hit the streets for justice with

But polar-eyes see blue versus red

the same as south versus north

Makes it hard to imagine a calm and peaceful

We control the narrative

now more than it’s ever been

A habit forms in 30 days,

each day’s practice syncs it in

So, before you say it, ask yourself,

“Am I saying this to build him up?”

Before you do it, self reflect,

“Am I doing this to fill her cup?”

Say “Thank You” and really mean it

every morning as you wake up

Ask “What’s my purpose?”

till you no longer have to make up

reasons why you hate yourself.

Then live on purpose, don’t break up

commit to let love take us up

to a better YOU-SA

learning to love all of itself.

Can I count on you to practice this

for 30 days and then

You’ll speak love, do love, live love

and that’s the only way we’ll win!

So since we've tried so many things

including all the stuff above

We need more power to unify

so I ask you "How Bout Love"

Join us on this journey to a better America

Be inspired and reminded to create a more perfect union
