Maybe now they'll
Sleep a little better knowing that it's over
Having done their part and had their say
How I wish they'd
Think a little harder to see it's all but started
Active love does more than tolerate.
Still we say I'll tolerate you, no I wont
I'll love you, I'll love you even when it hurts.
Demonstrated clearly
The never, not quite, nearly
Challenge set but never met
But I just can't see
How ignorance becomes us
The simple equation is dead
Don't divide, add love, less tolerance.
Everywhere I look I see the same
Pretence without shame
Spitting as they smile the incomplete feign elite
Hate glossed over covered up I see
The things I hate in me
It's everything I try to fight and everything I flee.
