My heart is saddened
each day I witness injustice,
Waste of beautiful moments,
soulful relationships and loves,
talents and gifts that could have been shared with others
rather than hidden behind hatred and walls, and,
especially as a mother,
the senseless waste of lives.
In the US and everywhere.
I cannot seek to change the world
without bettering myself first.
better yet, our
words and actions reflect
love and understanding
for ourselves and
with whom we share this wondrous world.
