To see love win

I cannot change the system from within,
so why stay here, stuck in the status quo?
I know I might not live to see love win.
 
When frightened minds see human love as sin
and power players change rules as they go,
itís risky changing systems from within.
 
I feel the judgement even from my kin,
who say that change is moving far too slow
and donít have time to wait to see love win.
 
But change by force will only change the spin,
as new oppressors rise up from below.
To end the cycle, hearts must change within.
 
So with these tiny acts I will begin
to build the ties that let compassion flow,
so hearts and systems thirst for change within,
and work together Ďtil we see love win.
