Those Places

Do you have those places that mean so much to you,

That you can’t even visit

You can’t even think about

Without your heart filling with

A love

So big

So grand

That it swells and wraps

It’s arms

Around you as you smile and let

That feeling take over your heart

Do you have those places?

Let’s start a movement

Let’s start a movement

Let’s start a simple movement

Relieving the burden of proof

From those who are oppressed

Relieving the burden of proof

From those who are marginalized

Relieving the burden of proof

From cultures that have been appropriated

Let’s start a powerful movement

Relieving the burden of proof

From those who experience micro aggressions

Relieving the burden of proof

From those that experience systemic racism

Relieving the burden of proof

From those that experience discrimination and prejudice

Let’s start a movement of believing those experiences by relieving the burden of proof requirement to be heard.
