Reasons…

​I voted out of fear

of who this nation is

under the kumbaya of all lives

and equality and freedom

and justice for all lives

Not because I had the right

But because the wrong 

has the power

Because the wrong

has the freedom

Because the wrong 

does not have the right

to still my voice

I voted out of fear

Not out of hope

because this country does not hope

for freedom’s liberty and statutes

of decency are shrouded

by flags that stripe red

with bloodshed
