It's inevitable,

Obligatory even.

So why try to avoid it?

Why run from the way the ball bounces?

All the promise breaking and risk taking, your lies barely weigh ounces.

All the children dying and people lying,  the destruction he announces.

Well I'm tired or the pain and suffering in my life, and the awkwardness you have caused.

All the goodness and joy and love you have paused.

But I won't back down or surrender in the darkness, because I'm worth something and no one can take that away from me.

The End
