Change (the prequel 4)


We were bullish and willing to sacrifice ourselves because that’s what love does; it races in front of firing squads believing in what could be.


Change, has been emancipated to stand with us as we march headfirst into Freedom’s captivity to unbridle her noose. I know that you’ve cried tears in agony as you felt life pleading with herself to stay love’s cruelty. You were the catalyst that liberated the world though you were not exempt from her work.


Thundering roars clap through the air to replace anger as we stood there unsure what this would become. We watched, we waited, we knelt remembering what life had done, that it battled with itself and lost but that’s the ugly side of love – it takes sacrifice to truly birth the transformational change that we chase.

As we march petals descend, taking lives upon lives upon lives as the scale of love slides further in opposition with itself causing a chain reaction of change that can not be reversed. Steadfast and starving you’ve enraged a global opposition of people united that you will never know – be still my golden flower because of your sacrifice we shall overcome!


Yes, you did that!
