I’m tired! Say my name! Say my name!
I’m tired! But I’m here to stay!
I will fight! I’m proud, got no shame!
I will fight! I won’t be forced away!
You can try to say we don’t exist.
I will shout, scream, and stomp!
Bigotry in the office? Yell “Resist!”
Trump promised to drain the fucking swamp!
Instead he caged children, seperated families!
He attempted travel and military bans!
Now this plague threatens to erase me!
Your voice is your weapon! Take a stand!
We do not cease at your command!
We fight! Tired, angry and unphazed!
You can kill us, our fury rises across the land
For we are here and we won’t be erased!

Better to erase this administration, as much as can be at any rate.
Only hope is to vote them out. I feel like our votes mean nothing though.
To the author, Don’t worry. The bad times too pass. I understand you have kids. Look at them. They need you. They are your responsibility. So live for them. They will give you strength to live.
I did not know you were still… I am glad you are. Thank you. Truly it means a lot to hear kind words in this time.
