If it makes your conscience desperately beat its wings against the glass cage of the world around you –

Burn It All Down

If squinting at the walls makes you notice all the cracks, Don’t stop squinting. Burn it all down.

If it makes you want to peel off your empathy,

If it claws at your heart,

Burn it all down.

If closing your eyes is more comfortable, If sewing your mouth shut seems less daunting, Burn it all down.

Don’t let your anger curdle inside of you, Don’t let injustice slip from your grasp,

Centuries are already engraved with those phantom pains, Take your compassion and aim it squarely at the ornamental tapestry that hides you.

If it makes your conscience desperately beat its wings against the glass cage of the world around you –

Burn it all down.
