It’s what they always say when they want you to ignore how they’re letting you burn.
We cannot return ashes to their former life… but we can grow anew, with immunity to flame.
We will revert this malignancy with nothing less than our powerful heat, our refusal to be stifled by those who fear it, fear the history that sparked us into existence.
You balk at the thought of a heat rash.
We don’t fight fire, we are the fire.
Fighting fire with fire sometimes is the best and only way to go as we might burn ourselves in the fight for equality, but we also burn down the gardens that grow hate.
