A Peaceful Protest

First in pairs

Then small groups

Then mobs and masses

Passing the plan

Save us

Pushing closer

Pulsing energy

Chanting

Yelling

Save us

Fists once clenched in anger

Now gripped with hope

The time had come

To be heard

Save us

Many voices

Many words

Joined as one

A single message

Whispered for generations

Shouted for now

Save us

Their oppressors would hear

Change is in the air

A new moon’s on the horizon

A forgotten people on the rise

Save us

Their leader would hear

Loyalty and support

Commitment

Dedication

Save us

The world would hear

A new song

Of freedom

And victory

Save us

People who matter

Protesting

Abandonment

Corruption

Save us

A world without hope

Protesting

Unfulfilled promises

Years of waiting

More of the same

Save us

Demanding

Change

Justice

Freedom

Pounding the battle drum

Surrendering their belongings

And perhaps their souls

Save us

A peaceful protest

The welcome of hope

An ushering in

A new time

Save us

Waving high and long

Signaling the start

Marking the end

Claiming their promise

Hailing their King

Cries from the past

Echoing today

Hosanna!

Save us now
