Poem: All Around Us

lightcircle.jpg

For every man that wakes up,

no matter what time of day,

no matter what he does for a living.

Here, I am.

Here, I will stay.

Here, I will not die, today.

For every child that goes to sleep,

no matter how many books are read,

no matter how tight the teddy bear is held.

Here, I am.

Here, I will protect.

Here, I will do my duty, tonight.

For every woman that questions,

no matter what hour it might be,

no matter how much it stings.

Here, I am.

Here, I will influence.

Here, I will challenge, all the time.

For every body that breathes,

no matter what they look like,

no matter what they feel they must do.

Here, I am.

Here, I will be.

Here, I will continue, forever.

2019
