Choose the right premise, Not an option to lose Sacrifice is progress Greed the fuse. We’ve been squandering Our convenient lives, Wallowing self- absorbed, Knowing our planet dies. Act with faith. Speak out. One humane voice, stronger together, “Walk a year in dignity or ride in shame,” New generations treading paths of pain The fear is here, fight with light I look to our youngsters, Their right to choose To wear stronger shoes
Day 18, of ‘one a day’ poems. By the end of April 2021, 30 poems will create a series. Each poem covers a fragment, a snippet taken consecutively throughout a day.
