diminished (1)

when they were strong,
the world made sense;
when wrong was wrong
and all offense
was thought to be
towards everyone —
  now only some can see
  the harm that’s done

when they stood tall,
we joined our hands:
with all for all,
across the lands,
the pattern clear,
the future bright —
  now what instead is here
  is fading
