Awakening

Go now, gather the threads of hatred, prejudice, and oppression then cut them loose,
Empty their remains into the gaping maw of the ocean,
Over the earth as waves rise up together
Resisting the touch of demons who lure the eyes toward blindness, who lull toward slumber
Go now, be the voice of righteous opposition and sing awake,
Enough is enough! History will not repeat itself!”

Feel the rythym of many drums beating as one, feel the wings of angels who walk among you,
Listen from your heart,
Only then will you know
You are me and I am you
Despite the difference in the colour of our skin, we are, have been, and will be human kin

In kinship let us birth a world where
We matter to one another where
Power is stitched from the same threads that
Embroider mercy and compassion.

  1. Excellent poetry…
    “Listen from your heart,
    Only then will you know
    You are me and I am you
    Despite the difference in the colour of our skin, we are, have been, and will be human kin ”
