It’s a different world right now than what I envisioned
With every new day, it seems that we go back to old ways
Many have interjected and reminded me that we have come far from where we were – and I will agree
But even in that moment of realization, I can’t help but think we should be so much further
We could do so much better
We would actually be great
I can’t help but question and wonder, what as a people, are we afraid of?
Why can’t we embrace our differences but understand we are one
Why can’t we do what’s right instead of what is easy?
Why can’t we empower each other instead of glorifying power?
Why can’t we live in peace instead of setting it as a goal?
Why can’t we be love and practice empathy instead embracing fear or saying “hope things work out for you real soon”?
Real change requires vulnerability, courage and selflessness
Money in politics only produces temporary solutions
Temporary solutions continue to divide the haves and have nots
I am not my sister’s keeper
I am my sister.
What I envision is a different world. So close but so far.
