There's a time…

by angryhippie

There’s a place for the silent.
There’s a time for concession.
There’s a time to be violent,
In the face of oppression.
There’s a will to be staggered.
There’s a time for the fall.
There’s a time to stand up
And to tear down this wall!

Check the clock and take stock.
Do you have what it takes
To fight back against the tide
Before the waves break,
And wash us all away,
In their waters of oppression?
Can you rise up against,
And subdue their aggression?

There’s a place for the truth
There’s a time it’d be spoken.
There’s a time when the proof
Will all be out in the open.
There’s a hope to be conquered.
There’s a time to renew it.
There’s a time to take up arms
And say we won’t suffer through it!

Check the time and design,
Does it wreak of confusion,
Has it been built of betrayal
By the cons in collusion?
Will it undo us all if left
Up to it’s intended devices,
Leaving a shattered wake
Wherein we all pay the prices?

There’s a place for the fear
There’s a time to be bowed…
But that place is not here,
And that time is not now.
It’s time to right the wrongs.
It’s time to set things straight.
There’s no time for apathy
There’s no more time to wait!

Check the date and current state
To see where we’ve landed,
And then find the strength
To be one of the branded,
Fighting for the changes,
For the freedoms we lost
To get all of them back
No matter the cost!

There’s a place for the silent,
There’s a time for concession.
There’s a time to be violent
In the face of oppression!

There’s a place to interfere
There’s a time not to bow,
That place is right here,
And that time is right now!
