Rise Up Together

Rise Up Together

Is it ignorance, preference, folly or fear
The look in their eyes that says you shouldn’t be here.
The sneer on the face, the disdain of others.
Perpetual ignorance between virtual brothers.
Opinions divide, beliefs polarize
And community crumbles before our very eyes.
Your way is wrong but our way is right.
Step out of the darkness, come into the light.
While society argues, broadcasting views
Every single person has the right to choose
But still wars are started and rage on every day
Because somebody somewhere thinks theirs is the only way.
Where there should be love, hatred stampedes
Creating conditions that this world doesn’t need.
And why? What’s the point? It seems terribly strange
To have anger preserved preventing fresh change.
We all live on this planet, it’s the same air we breathe
We can respect each other’s choices, our roots, our beliefs
And we don’t have to agree, we don’t have to think the same
But nothing ever gets resolved when you’re hooked on looking for things to blame.
So gender, orientation, age, ethnicity, whatever
Just hold out your hand
And let us rise up together.

hello august quote ms moem

Hello August! July, you were groovy.
These warm summer months do fabulous things to me.
The skies are blue, and sun shines bright.
Deckchair days, and sangria nights.
