Sleep came hard last night…it seemed to avoid me
My eyes were closed, but my mind —well, I think you understand.
What caused my thoughts to shift and drift, and scream around in my head
Was the thought (or is it fear) we are in the middle of a cultural revolution.
We are in a time where we are crazily divided
There are sectional tensions and a feeling of gathering paranoia.
A feeling of not just drifting forward, but we jolting head-long–tumbling, falling, so to speak.
I woke, telling myself, I will put this out there—My thoughts need somewhere to go
A way to exhale; to stop the constant whispering at the back of my mind
So I shall write this, and let my worries, cares, and concerns dissipate
I will continue to believe in treating the earth well, the common decency of each and every person I meet, and
That common sense will bond us together. Not the squealing anger and fear
Which, randomly jumps out at us (me) now and again.
From my world to your heart,
