Prejudice. oppression. Our world is plagued by it. Our very society
is based on it, feeds of it even now; and that hate spreads like a
virus infecting more and more. It syphons from the blood spilt, the
battles fought and the suppression of minorities. Is this the society
you know? The society you are apart of?
have to fight. Fight for our rights. Fight for the minorities ignored
and forgotten. This is why we must cry out, we must kick and scream.
We can ignite the dormant sparks in the suppressed, and let their
fires grow. For as the fire that we nuture can burn brighter, and
these people will become beacons for the people hiding in the shadows
casted by the powerful and corrupt. They will eliminate the darkness
and provide hope, a chance at happiness. Nurture the fire, let it
consume the darkness and allow the suppressed the thrive in an
opressive world. Who is to decide whom the oppressed are? Who is to
decide who gets rights? Who. is. To. Decide. The government official?
The men of God? The neighbours and their ideals?
I want to
be a beacon. I want the fire in my soul to consume me. I want to
fight. I will show that yes, the sky is darker before the dawn. But
when our dawn arrives, the sky will be alight with the most wonderous
of colours. We won’t see our change. We won’t see the result of our
battles and our opposition ton injustice, nor of the people before
us. Will our children? Grandchildren? Who knows? But I find peace in
knowing that one day our fighting, our kicking and our screaming,
will not be in vain. For those who were killed for their beliefs and
opposition to the injustice of our world.
Powerful. As long as you have a mind, no matter how squandered and a
soul no mattered how crushed, you can make a difference. You can lead
the fire, and pass it on. As long as you have passion in your eyes,
and hope in you heart that fire will never burn out. You. Mustn’t.
Let. it. Burn. Out. Not now, and not ever. For the next generation
will carry that light with them, and maybe just maybe, our great
grandchildren will be shocked to learn equality had to be fought for.
Harness you fire, and use it.
will evolve, it will grow into something beautiful. A bonfire in the
darkness, a symbol of our determination. Scream, struggle and rage
against what society tells you. You have worth, you are human. Stay
positive, keep fighting. Your spark will ignite into a fire greater
than hell could ever accomplish. You can burn brighter than ever, and
you will use that fire to carve a path for those who need it. So you
go to that protest, you argue with those who suppress, you create
that charity. Because the truth is, if you don’t, nothing will
be told, we need change.
