Question the Establishment?

NaBloPoMo 2021. Do Good, Kid

You should not be a rebel outright

The establishment you should not constantly fight

But at the same time I want you to know

Do not be afraid to challenge the status quo

When the order of things seems stagnant

When archaic rules no longer appear relevant

When social norms appear discriminatory

When sectarian behavior is rooted in violent history

When environmental insensitivity you see

When science is eclipsed by quackery

By all means, for the right cause, your voice you should raise

Question the norms, forge new pathways

Towards a new order contemporary and just

If something feels wrong, try to address it you must

*

Let me caution you here, though

It is never easy to challenge the status-quo

It is easier to take the path of least resistance

And do nothing, but at the cost of a nagging conscience

You may be labeled a nonconformist or an iconoclast

You may lose friends, become an outcast

The fight could feel lonely and long

But if you follow your heart and have conviction strong

You should carry on, because enduring change does not come

Without perseverance and luck, to extent some
