Triggers!


Triggers: battle; attack; mask; fight


Fight!

this is our coup d’etat
the end of ends
the beginning of beginnings

we face down an uncertain future
filled with grim notices of the past
hoping it could get better

our future selves- our children
need us to face and attack
destroy the road blocks in our way

if we leave things as they are
and just pretend- just mask
our future will not change

we must fight
we cannot give up
we cannot surrender

this is our coup d’etat
the end of ends
the beginning of beginnings
