The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to stifle it; but it is also so clear that it is impossible to mistake it.

We , the βeta people

Are the ones for whom

Morality

    Religion

         Loyalty

Were created

              Manipulated

                           Upheld

 

To keep us in our place…

 

By those for whom they are but

                                          Empty jibberish…

 

But we embraced them

Cherished them

Made them our own.

 

How would wars have been fought

If it wasn’t for our loyalty?

 

How would the temples, cathedrals, been built,

The fields plowed,

The children brought up,

If it wasn’t for our

                dedication?

                       Perseverance?

                               Faith?

 

And would families have survived

If we did not acquiesce

     Submit

            Flex

               Deny

                     Bend over

Surrender

        Love

               Forgive

                       Try to understand?

 

But by now

A veil had been lifted from over our eyes.

We see the α-lphas for what they are,

For who they are,

For what they stand for,

And for everything they are not.

We see them carrying the world to the brink

On our backs

Through our compliance

 

And we start –

Whispering

       Talking out loud

                Roaring

                                   Our Voice,

                                       Our resistance

 

No More!!!
