You reject the land that gave you freedom
To cling to a fantasy, of an alternative reality
A fantasy where your home
Was different
Not the place of nightmares & terror
You dream it could be different
If only the world would agree & take notice
Then the unthinkable
You demand a sacrifice
To raise awareness
You demand a sacrifice from people that do not know your dream
Do not know your cause
And do not share your fantasy
You demand from them without recourse
You do not allow them to make the choice
In that moment you underline the reality of where you came from
Even if you change things
you change them by being just the same as what you want to change
And so, there is no change
Only more pain, more blood & more heartbreak.
If only your could have found peace
If only you could know forgiveness
Then you could have really made change happen
