Even Alone (I have Always Known)

Even alone
I have always known
What I wanted to be
I wanted to be somebody
Who stood for peace
Helped others
And accepted others
The way I would want
Them to accept me
Acceptance is key
If you want to live free
No one lives free
While consumed by hate
I'm sorry but
It doesn't work that way
I'm sorry
But living willingly
In a world of hate
Just seems
Beyond insane
To me
Hate consumes
And tries to
Destroy you
Don't let it
Against it
Take a stand
And to your brother
Always lend
A helping hand
