Consumed

You say we’ve avoided war

But now we’ve just turned the gun on ourselves

You say we’re going to be better now

But how is oppression better than moving forward?

 

How can you do this to the ones you claim to love?

Destroying our siblings and neighbors

Destroying our friends and our lovers

 

I’m afraid of what’s ahead

There’s no taking back what we have become

It’s not that it wasn’t here before

But validation makes our aggression

Bare its teeth and sharpen its claws

 

Hate is coming for us all

Slowly consuming all we are

Until there’s nothing left to feel

But bitterness and pain
Sooner or later you will regret what

You’ve become

Sooner or later you will see the

Damage you have done

 

Now I’ve had enough
