Resistance

 

RESISTANCE

Evil creeps
from the abyss
where it hides in hovels
holes and caves
It surfaces from murky waters
stagnant swamps
Amidst the scum that lies
upon the surface

Evil lurks
within the hearts of men
who stand on platforms
of hypocrisy and hatred
Lies flash behind
smiles that promise
but won’t deliver
and never planned to

Evil calls
to those who claim
to have good intentions
They cling to tradition
and read from ancient books
deliberately misinterpreted
to excuse cruel
words and deeds

Evil thrives
where there is fear
Dividing us against them
Pitting one against the other
Never revealing
the true enemy
It grows between the cracks
in the foundation of humanity

Evils cowers
beneath the light
Lies shrivel under
the harsh rays of truth
Love triumphs when
we stand together
linking hands and hearts
in resistance
