author’s note: originally intended this piece to be a spoken word. so it loses some of the infliction and passion that i’d like it to have. but hopefully you enjoy it regardless
All I see is wrought with evil
Where are the people of goodwill?
I’m told it’s not our fault
we’re just a product of our times
but I reject such a frivolous notion!
I choose to be more.
Don’t tell me I can’t
I’ll show you I can
We could be the generation that finally learns to love
We can choose to be more.
Yes, the fight will be hard
For as is said, “Here there be Dragons”
Yet I know that we will rise to the challenge
We will be more.
Peace, Love, and Happiness…
