Living in Reverse

When they say you have to live in anger

living in reverse finds your soul is at peace

When they say the only way is to hate the other

the black

the white

the party in power

or out of it

living in reverse means hosting the bbq

crossing the street

looking for the place that opposites can meet

When they say you have to take whatever you can

living in reverse means that you thrive in the love you give

When they say that you have to feed the pain of the past

living in reverse means that you will start counting up all the things you can behind

the baggage of another fight

the bondage of another failure

the bitterness that brings comfort

and the applause of a bloodthirsty mob

celebrating a night of violence and looting

that does nothing to help them

living in reverse means walking in hope

while the world is running like a river to the waterfall
