Hunger hides in the schools
Hunger hides in the uneducated
Hunger hides in a child's mind
Why should this be a political fight
We are not asking for a feast, just a little something to eat.
Sadness hides in the home
Sadness hides in the room
Sadness hides in the man on the streets
Don't want to run in your circle anymore.
Want to take that straight line leave it all behind
Pain hides in the head
Pain hides in the lie
Pain hides in the woman's box
Change your name change your life game.
Want to remove this pain just to replace with a different kind of pain
Ignorance hides in the tip of a pen
Ignorance hides in the words of a little girl
Ignorance hides in the toothless follower
Red hat, red mask dyed with the blood of the virus of millions
Showing off how privilege you can be when it is only attention you need
Love hides in behind newborn eyes
Love hides in giving without a witness
Love hides in a kiss unconditional.
More than a touch more than activity
Life, designed to be free
Hope hides in a morel decision
Hope hides in the silences before the dawn
Hope hides in the gift shop of the Obama Center
The last few dollars on a losing lotto ticket
Has more hope than what a preacher asks for in faith
Peace hides within the mind; the questions of life are inside.
Peace hides in the silence of nature
Peace hides in the forgiveness of oneself
The things we search for we hide
The meaning to these feelings we hide
All that we hide has become a part of life.
