what will life look like in this new world?
this world we did not ask for?
this world we thought could not would not ever come?
it’ll look much like the old one.
you’ll look much the same
the ones you love, they’ll look much the same too.
for those who have hate in their hearts, the ones they hate will look the same still.
what can we do?
we can love and we can create and we can inspire.
we can do everything that our paths have been preparing us for.
we can rise up and take the baton and say if not me then who and if not now then when.
We can gather.
we can cry.
we can feel utterly defeated and utterly elated.
we can identify the signs now.
we can point out hate like a kid who peed in a pool that turned blue because we have blue in our hearts just like the woman we all cast our ballots for.
what we can do is look at the moon.
love one another.
look into peoples eyes
ask why hate is there if it is
offer love instead
offer a step back from love if that person is not ready
offer your own authenticy.
in this new world
the one we did not ask for
the sun will still rise
the moon will still inspire
people will still love
people will still hate
the only thing we have
the only thing that matters
is ourselves and the little beam in our hearts that tells us another human is near
listen to it
spread light because it’s the only thing you can do.
