Activism

I wrote this poem several weeks ago. I am willfully burying myself in books about feminism, social justice, and what we can do while we live on this planet.

Activism
identify yourself
stop apologizing
stop giving pre-ambles
say if you're wrong,
only when and if you truly are
be open to being dismissed
spend a significant amount of time
in a developing country
know when to drop pebbles
so you know when to drop boulders

  1. Beautiful telling poem. And one that left me all curious about what books you are delving into.

Hey there,

2. Anything that resembles racism, homophobia, classism, ableism, or anything based from religion, citizenship, or ethnic bias - don't bother commenting, you'll be deleted.
