I was the light in your darkness
The grey you saw amidst the colour
I was the jumper, the first one to leap,
I was the first to see your fears so deep.
I was the one they could not control,
The one that followed no rules.
I was like you, no dream walking state,
Before they stole your mind to hate.
I was the one that never gave up.
The one who stood before your gun.
I was the one you heard in the dark
that drew you back out, that brought back your spark.
I am the one that fights by your side
for the rights to be more than just brave.
We are the ones that want to end this mess-
to be smart and honest, peaceful and selfless.
