Where Has All Our Bravery Gone?

Where has all our bravery gone?
Smothered beneath ignorance
Shuttered behind closed minds
Subdued in reflexive, flexing brawn

Where has all our trust gone?
Mired in misinformation
Moored to capitalism’s wake
Made rare by the long con

Where has all our hope gone?
Lost on crumbling roads
Lured away by broken promises
Left a listless voice without a song

Where has all our humanity gone?
Buried under mindless anger
Battered by unfounded fear
We’ve forgotten, we can be strong
