There are times when I’ve forgotten why I’m here.
So much is happening around me yet I feel powerless.
Overwhelmed, at times I wish to bury my head in the sand,
But this is not me!
I refuse to sit idly by, while others contribute?
I am not helpless!
I cannot be a passive observer of injustice,
As this would make me no better than they.
I will not stand by, oblivious to the callousness of man,
For what kind of man would that make me.
These are the enabler’s of genocide and war,
Bigotry, hatred and inequality toward our equals,
Repression of those of lesser will,
Arrogance and ignorance,
I will take no part in these travesties!
I do not need God to beseech of me,
For I already know what is right and good.
With this I will find my way on the straightened path,
My moral compass to guide me,
In my journey to affect change.

We all have moments like these. Some, more than others. 🙂
I couldn’t agree more as a matter of fact I think I fall into the “more than others” category. 🙂
You and I both
Such a beautiful and strong proclamation. I admire your power of conviction.
Thank you very much. I may not have many things, but I would like to believe that I have conviction whether it be right or wrong. 🙂
Honest outrage – the first step toward effecting change, for when the change is spawned inside of us, it will be an instrument of change. I’m cheering you on!
Thank you Melody, I’m glad you have my back. 🙂
