The power of we


Twisting us
Contorting us
Into what
You think we should trust

You can try to take us down
Try to make us drown

But you’ll never have us fall
Never see us crawl
We’ll always
Always stand tall

All your cheerful little robots
Dripping with enthusiasm
Such happiness we will never fathom

I think its time to eradicate it
Too late now to debate it
Yah just keep looking at us with that condescending glare
Keep underestimating us without a care

But try not to look so surprised
When we crush you and carry out the plan we’ve devised
But until then keep thinking were powerless
Ignorantly thinking well make no mess

Keep thinking you can break us
Keep thinking you can overtake us
Then realize you can’t even shake us

Then the fear will set in your eyes
And we will watch your sense of control as it dies
We will watch your sense of security as it implodes
And of course well watch your pride as it corrodes

We will never agree
To what you want us to be
You try to deny
Our hunger to be free

Oh just give it up
Because well never give in
So long as you try to keep us down
We will fight back with a bloody grin

Yes

You’ll soon realize
The power of we
Annihilates all of your lies

You’ll soon find
The power of we
Can sever any tyrannical bind

The power of we
pushes you on your knees to plea

The power of we
Is greater then you’ll ever be

The power of we
Forces you to see

The power of we

The power of we

The power of we
Deep down even you agree

And that’s what scares you the most of all
Deep down even you can’t deny that we can walk tall

Deep down you can’t deny what you know:

We cannot die
We will not fail
You watch us now
We will prevail

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
