Day by day, injustice ravages the populous with no end in sight. Yet, our response as a society is fleeting. If every voice rose up in opposition to injustice, if every voice applied pressure through multiple avenues, we could create lasting change. But we can't. Our lens of focus never stays steady enough. And as the general populous' voice wanes, the power and leverage they held crumbles.
We watch as every step forward is met by a million steps backwards. We bide our time for opportunities that never arrive. And at the end of the day, nothing changes except the promises we make to ourselves to never waver, to never give up... and so goes the dream of tomorrow.
