This feeling of disillusionment weighs heavily

I want to yell at them

shake them

awaken them from this Twilight Zone

Why can't they see it?

How could they have forgotten?

We were supposed to be in this together

United we stand

Divided we fall

Was it all for nothing?

      Yes, I think it speaks to the strength of the poem. Plays really well with perspective... and how we are all the same in a way.

      Very perceptive. We really are more alike than we are different. I hope both sides can eventually find a middle ground again.
