We march because we grow tired of walking the long way home
We sit-in because we can no longer stand injustice
We hunger strike because we can no longer accept starvation
We stage walkouts at schools because we demand an actual education
We protest because silence can be deafening
We speak out because not to leaves us drowning in lies
We lock arms because the chains of oppression are our weakening link
We fill the jails because it is the only way to free the imprisoned.
We fight because to not is to die
We climb because to not is to fall
We strive because to not is to accept defeat
We struggle because to not is to retreat into soul killing apathy
We march because the prophecy demands the way go forward
We march because we will not go one step back.
