what authenticates the gift
is the giving!
love is a trail of tiny sacrifices
made over small fires at night
to an unseen god.
the word ‘god’ is a failure,
much less the concept.
we try to define the ocean,
and cant contain the wave!
prejudice, our greatest weakness,
comes from the fear of seeing
the sameness in all the colors
of the rainbow.
the Freedom Riders took on
the segregated south in the sixties…
we need freedom riders now,
unafraid of beatings,
unafraid of prison,
committed at all costs.
for we face a deeper segregation now,
nationwide… the elite
segregated from the rest of us…
the many segregated from the few.
the gulf of hatred and abuse is wide…
this is what makes the Occupy Movement
so important!
