Dying

People dying from disease. Dying for clean water to drink. People dying for a kind word, or hello. No extra shot of racism with their Starbucks americano. People dying for a fight. Dying from a bullet, fist, or fright. People dying for appreciation; less taxation, more honest representation. Dying of depression. Dying for the next presidential election. People dying from being undernourished, overstimulated, discombobulated. People dying for truth. Quadraphonic equality and a freedom-ringing groove. People dying to love, to give, and dance. People dying to live again. People dying to live again.
