Normal

Categories: Writing

We can’t go back to normal,
Because normal got us here.
Sold us lies,
Disguised as dreams.
And divided us with fear.

We can’t go back to normal,
When normal is a myth
A fairy-tale,
To comfort us.
As we’re led to the abyss.

We can’t go back to normal,
Our normal was a trap.
Conforming us,
To fit a mould.
That they can fill with crap.

We can’t go back to normal,
When normal serves so few.
Enriching some,
Beyond their needs.
While bankrupting me and you.

We can’t go back to normal,
Where normal wears a face.
Where skin tone says,
Who you can be.
Segregating us by race.

We can’t go back to normal,
Normal’s white, and male, and straight.
Built on genocide,
And Murder,
And a legacy of hate.

We can’t go back to normal,
When normal will kill us all.
Extinguish us,
To make a buck.
Humanity will fall.

There is no fucking ‘Normal’,
It’s an idea in our heads.
A way to think,
About the world,
And the lives that we have led.
