And unheard

My words

Fall short

When they could

Be bold

In paperback

Or in print

But to me

It’s not important

What is

Is the process of creation

To practice


With patience

So I am set on that front

Nothing more that I want


Holding hope

Holding patience

In a time

When waiting feels wasted

Yet to listen

When people scream

So angry

That I’m not sure

What it all means

But change happens

Not in a day

But in a lifetime

So I am holding


That we can do better

One day at a time
