We must do the things we believe to be noble.
Not just talk about them or tuck them away in a journal,
never to be ventilated by action.
We must believe that we have the power to level the playing field,
to give voice and shape to our visions for
justice, compassion, grace and kindness,
not judging any step forward as too small, too insignificant.
We must dust off the muscles of revolution,
invest in the belief that none of us are meant to be
cast in permanent form, shackled by the habit of time.
We must do everything we can
everything that we tell ourselves we cannot
to contribute to the soul of humanity.
