A quick poem written February 25, 2005 but even more relevant today
When I look in the mirror
I see a reflection of many struggles
Those fought by many soldiers
Who strived for something better
Something that started as only a hope or a dream
To realize it one would never have seen
Each part and each section
Was fundamental to the rest
And each one had to face it’s individual test
But where does this reflection that I see fit into the puzzle
Must I speak up before my words are muzzled?
Looking through bars it’s behind
Or do I sit back and reflect
Leaving others in neglect?
Stand up for justice #BlackLivesMatter
