let's destroy nightmares

i wish this were
only a nightmare
so i could open my eyes,
and will it all away;
so many insist
that we must give him a chance
and accept the will
of the people—
yet they don't seem to be literate
because he lost the popular vote
which meant most of america
didn't like the man,
and i can safely say he's not my president;
i don't believe in bigotry or hatred or the wars
that he so loves—
when nightmares become reality
i've realized we cannot
succumb to despair,
but dream brighter and better dreams to conquer
this darkness to fight it with everything within
our spirits;
because only light can destroy
nightmares, darkness, and monsters.
