What we really want

We make a big scene
on a social front
for change and equality
for rights at new heights
for the sake of human prosperity

We shout and scream
picket and protest
holding our ideas and values
to make life fair
to take away despair so grotesque

Aren’t we so conscious
to the ills of the world?
to the evils of our forefathers
to bigotry and hatred
and the destinies of the ill-fated unfurled

Self-preservation is fact
fear is a driving force
to maintain the status quo
in the face of heroics
we often succumb to the usual course

Many wish for revolution
without making sacrifice
if change is what we really wanted
watching the ills of the world unfold
would prove to simply suffice
