We live in a time of great injustice,
of death, of disease, of discrimination, of hate, of climate change, of inaction,
problems persisting for centuries.
It is our time to step up.
on the battlefield of doom.
There is a light
we see in our hearts.
But some have none.
If my news is wrong and your news is right
then what facts are true?
The lack of truth ails us – it is a testament to double speak,
to the power of lies
and of hate.
They march on sacred ground
and break the windows and doors that protect.
The powerless feel empowered
How can we move on
if some are taught not to listen?
Is this the way things are meant to be?
We do not deserve the world we are inheriting.
We deserve better.
We need to pull each other out of the cave
and reignite and teach empathy,
so that the cycle stops repeating or staying the same.
so we can have peace
