The world will change

The world will change

Even if you don’t want it to

Even if you grasp at old straws

Protest out loud, try to rearrange

Things that are new

In ways that are old

A changed world will challenge your ways

Mock you, deride you

Force you into acceptance

Eventually, while you are left

Bewildered, disoriented

And with a longing intense

For things as they used to be

The old world order as it stood

The traditional way of doing business

The old positions of hierarchy

The new order will upend

Your position in the world

Your privilege will not be upheld

And people will no longer bend

At your discretion as they used to

They might be the ones who are

Rewriting rules for a new world

That are not conducive for you


The world will change, change it will

Whether you change with it or stand still

The voices of those previously silenced

Will continue to increase in their cadence

You don’t have to protest, you should not resent

To create a more just world is the intent
