Civil Disobedience

To never letting voting be enough
nor abusing life for your convenience

to stop excess and live within yourself
denying all the loved luxuriance

to not await a change that must become
in revolution-based expedience

expressing discontent for injustice
to live in civil disobedience.


 

Just some thoughts I had after reading (and trying to summarize) the essay “Resistance to Civil Government” – better known as “Civil Disobedience” – by Henry David Thoreau.
