Do Not Weaponize them

It’s not their fight
It isn’t their war
Don’t put them in between
Don’t make them choose
It’s not their fight
It isn’t their war
They did not subscribe
To this channel of separation
To be torn apart
To be used as a weapon
Used as a bargaining chip
Manipulated
Lied to and deceived
It’s not their fight
It isn’t their war
Don’t placate them
With bribery and gifts
To prove you’re the better option
To think you’ve won this battle
Because there are no victors
When they get bruised and broken
When their light fades
It’s not their fight
It isn’t their war
But the children are most damaged
When you’re thinking of yourself first
