At any given moment your path could change…
from challenges to self made choices
from joy to sadness within microseconds.
Yet, what should remain is
the solidity of your faith
the strength in your willpower
aligned with a moral compass
deep in the fathoms of love,
and compassion for others
as well as yourself.
I see paths forged of a
different merit system
and I fear for the narrative of
this world. Yet, I see unity of
hands stretching across vast countries,
a unified voice no longer silenced,
defining the definition of travesties
hatred, greed and vileness.
I read about their voices
an outcry for a different narrative
to their stories.
I am consumed with pride
like a mother who watches her
children rise up in strength.
I am overwhelmed with love.
