I never wanted to know what I know now
For I know now how evil people can be
How children bully each other to the point of suicide
How parents will abuse their own children
How man will abuse a woman who tells him "no" and vice versa
How hatred can spread because of one's race
How hatred can spread because of one's sexuality
How one person can convince an entire army to **** innocent people

And the people who fight against it
Are threatened
Are beaten
Are gunned down
Are bombed
Are murdered
Are torn down by the very people they are trying to help

The fact of the matter is
These people want equality
These people want peace
These people want freedom
These people want blacks and whites to take each other's hands
These people want gays and straights take each other's hands
These people want love

To spread love
To show everyone that love is real
To show that love is the only answer you need

When you're sad
When you're depressed
When you're angry
When you're confused
When you're sitting there wondering why you were born

The people who think this need and deserve love
The people who feel this need and deserve love
These people just want love

And I pray that one day
Love be what we show to our brothers and sisters
We show that we care
We show that we will always have their backs
We show that we will always stand beside them
We show that we will always be there when they need us
We show that no matter what happens we will always love them
Always
