We must rise above the demanding;
Those who would hold us back…
Covering our light with darkness;
Telling us we must conform.
Some would have us call
Darkness light and light darkness;
In a world where darkness rules
Always distorting the truth.
Others would like us to believe
Conformity is the answer to faith…
That questioning or having a different view
Needs to be held in question.
Sad that we can’t enjoy our diversity;
Without one side or the other
Feeling like they have to control
The way everyone else thinks.
