Legend for you
Blue dots signify innocent lives
Red mostly for trauma and blood shed
Yellow for the opportunities and resources we have
Green for glimpses of hope and growth
And the rest is up to you
It’s not hard to understand
It’s easy to stay oblivious, look away
It’s difficult though
And for the rest of us
Who have had to live the experience
Who have had to do nothing but just watch
And quite frankly
Times I have had to look away
To preserve what I have left
When there is so much to see
I’m aware some of us have lost our sights
Either against our will or through our actions
But I promise you I still see things
And that I will make sure I do
And that the rest of the lenses do
We will see this through
Yet for now, choose your battles
We want progress
