– losing the war? –

I cannot wave this white flag…

not for the lives lost,

not for the lies told,

not for the truth’s cost,

not for deception sold.

~

They want a war;

too obvious  of an agenda –

divide,

then conquer.

Why give them what they desire

just because they have a specific power?

Why throw the towel in

just because they have a specific control?

I know through these silent tears of mine that

we can still love together,

we can still fight together,

we can still win together.

~

I cannot wave this white flag…

even with this twitch in my hand to do so.
