Love and Rage,
Rage and Love,
These are the things I am made of.
A tender mercy
A brutal vengeance
A burning unholy interdependence.
A tear may fall, a fist may fly,
A quiet word, a battle cry.
You can't see why, I swing these ways,
Your rose colored glasses, block the rays.
Rage and Love
Love and Rage,
These are the bars on my cage.
A cage of anger
A cage of peace
Built to contain this beast.
Because I love
Because I hate,
I lack the power to uncreate.
Hell below
Heaven above
These are the things I am made of.
Love and Rage
Rage and Love,
I hate these things I am made of.

I think you are right. Many people just don't get it. They don't see our problem because they can't see through our eyes. A poem like yours helps, though.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)
