Hope in our future

Horror in our past

Love is the suture

To make humanity last

We choose integrity

Honor, kindness,

Empathy

Putting This Aside

All politics aside

How do we thrive

Stay alive inside

No hide

Or claim

I’m beside

Myself

Hiding on a shelf

Like the that little red elf

Moping

Hoping

It’ll all go away

We can stay out of the fray

Today

And everyday

Then we say

I’m better than them

I don’t hate Muslim

But that’s all you do

Then you say phew

That got me off the hook

I can turn away, not look

Must.

Do.

What.

I.

Can.

Fight through

Do what you can do

Resist

Persist

Help all humans

Exist

Thrive

Be alive

Live

Give

I’ll Sit Awhile

I’ll sit with you awhile

To just be…

With you

I’ll sit awhile

To just be….

With myself

I’ll sit awhile

To just be…

One with the universe

I’ll sit awhile

To just be…

And know that

I am with you

Something To Do

Some might say I’m shallow

I would describe me as a whole.

Regardless of the apt description

I’m aching for humanity’s souls.

My mission in life spreads joy and happiness,

Yet sometimes I fall from the path.

Getting caught in the vitriol and ugliness,

And stuck in their powerful wrath.

So as I continue to struggle

With our current state of affairs.

I want to keep to my mission:

Helping to mend our societal tears

Please won’t you help me reconcile,

How those filled with racism, hate

Can put themselves on a pedestal

And still claim this country as great?

Those concepts to me – antithetical

To helping others move up in their station,

Toward the great ideals of our forefathers

And return greatness to our nation.

But still, that isn’t nearly enough!

We must lead with the following broad message:

Across all peoples and places;

That love and cooperation foremost

Will help heal the rifts ‘twixt the races.
