I Feel #poetry #strongertogether

I feel great hope and great despair
Alternating like the folds
Of a pinwheel in the glinting sun

 

I feel cries of outrage
Rise up around the nation
I feel heartbreak and fear
In each vulnerable soul

 

I feel it in my heart
I carry it with me
I carry it in my heart

 

I ache with shock and grief
Yet bubbling up within me
Is a resolve
Galvanized into the steel
Of solidarity
Glinting rays of hope

March with me #poetry #strongertogether

The vice around my ribs cranks tighter
Fear chokes me
I have shed tears
but I have so many more

I thirst for the hope of yesterday
Yet I cannot turn back time
I cannot change minds of the past

I can only move forward

Though my heart wants to squeeze
my eyes shut tight
I force them open

For I must see to choose a path
of strength and love
empowerment over complacency

I must lace up my boots
and harden my feet
for the march that is to come
