No more doing nothing

I hear you.
All your loud voices broadcast anger, frustration, desperation.
Rightly so.
I see the care, empathy, and concern.
Rightly so.
I’m feeling the impavid feistiness of your direction.
I can see your determination manifest change.
Make that blockade of white suits bow before you.
Shut down that noise in your face telling you no.
Strike down the smug betrayers of your future.
Ride with the forcible waves of support behind you.
And make the future we failed to give you
a better place than where you’ve risen up from.
You deserve to reside there.
I love you.
