Be the example
Day 19, 30-day #candleflame challenge.
“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./
Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”
If you see it’s okay
To scream at people
To swear at them
To push in front of them
To be disrespectful.
You believe “me too”
They do it, why can’t I?
Many people much more
Than I have asked the question.
Of when will this stop?
The disgusting behavior.
So this isn’t new.
It happens daily all over the world.
Some known more than others.
I push a love agenda
A hopeful agenda.
But it’s hard to bear witness
To know what it is to be the victim
Of a violent crime
Of someone you love.
And to see it happening all around you
All around your world around you.
Wishing and hoping
Doesn’t make things
Love everyday fiercely.
Speak everyday fiercely.
Fight everyday fiercely.
That understanding this wins
That this rage can be calmed.
That it is a choice.
Be the example that lifts us up.
Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
