On making a ruckus

Be sure that it’s not about you.

That you’re not just trying to prove a point.

That it’s not coz you have a chip on your shoulder,

A self-righteous narrative

That eternally gives you a moral higher ground.

Be sure that the story you’re telling yourself

Is challenged regularly,

That the righteous crusade you’re on

Isn’t just a witch hunt.

If you’re going to make a ruckus

Disrupt an industry

Shake things up

Change the world,

Don’t do it just coz it’s seems popular these days

To do so

And don’t just do it because you can.

Do it because you actually care.

Because once we are living in this new world

You’ve fought for,

It has to be big enough

For all of us,

Even the people you disagree with.
