My quivering thumbs beat against the same drums

My quivering thumbs beat against the same drums Over

My quivering thumbs beat against the same drums Over and over.

And that sound matches the pounding in my chest.

And that sound matches the pounding in my chest. Or is that the pounding in my head?

I am a body humming with dread.

Blue

Blue then Red,

Blue then Red, my visions consumed

Blue then Red, my visions consumed by a map of colors that continues to bloom.

Blue then Red, my visions consumed by a map of colors that continues to bloom. Like the fresh bruises forming on the knees of democracy.

But no founding father can kiss this away.

Our wound has no balm

Our wound has no balm so we cling to our screens

Our wound has no balm so we cling to our screens and wait for the calm.

Our wound has no balm so we cling to our screens and wait for the calm. An end to this act,

Our wound has no balm so we cling to our screens and wait for the calm. An end to this act, when will the curtain just fall?

It's the season finale. Who will win it all?

Because I already know who's lost.

Because I already know who's lost. All the Americans that pay the cost.

Because I already know who's lost. All the Americans that pay the cost.The people who continue to fight

Because I already know who's lost. All the Americans that pay the cost.The people who continue to fight. The people who still have to protest for their right

Because I already know who's lost. All the Americans that pay the cost.The people who continue to fight. The people who still have to protest for their right to be EQUAL.

To be heard. To be known.

To be heard. To be known. The people that ache to feel safe in their home.

In their country.

In their country. The Land of the free.

In their country. The Land of the free. It takes bravery to stand up to oppression.

In their country. The Land of the free. It takes bravery to stand up to oppression. America is about liberation. Let’s not forget that rebellion founded our nation.

So what will the future be?

So what will the future be? So what will the future be?

So what will the future be? So what will the future be? So what will the future be?

In the next four years what will we see?

What will we keep? And what goes?

We voted

We voted now it's time to see

We voted now it's time to see what America chose.

— These last two days, and honestly the last nine months have been excruciating. The world has changed forever. We need to be better as people and better as a country. We need to be careful. And I don’t just mean careful with our safety like wear a mask and social distance. Although we need to do that.

But I mean “be full of care.” Practice EMPATHY. Be selfless. Because this world is imperfect, we are imperfect, but that does not mean we stop trying to be better. Care for each other. Ignorance is no longer an excuse. It’s time to step up. Because after this terrible year we MUST protect our future. Let’s all agree to leave the worst of 2020 in the past. 💙
