by David Dvorak

Hating where this has brought me
Hating what and how this has made me into
Despise the blood industries for leading us here
Despising them more for their cold-hearted ignorance
Forcing our hands more and more by the moment
No matter the cost or security present we proceed
Our actions coming easier releasing all we can
Our hearts bleeding for any too late to rescue and save
Tears fill my eyes even as I write
Holding back until time is right to strike
Petitions signed ineffectual to those already dead
More than willing to leave the guilty the same
Until all have been released in freedom
&verified forever safe from harm
This battle will rage on near eternal
Our hearts of love entering the fight unhindered
