Woke (Up)

Spread the love

There’s conflict rising in bloodless skies,
Like catchphrase posed to ease the pain.
‘To malfeasance, clearly we aren’t woke’
Soul shivers at mention of these words.

I say we rise, scream out loud — requite
Cause spirit’s worn out: lies and artifice
Let us breathe back love into this world.

    I love those opening lines, Sanaa:
    ‘There’s conflict rising in bloodless skies,
    Like catchphrase posed to ease the pain.’
    Catchphrases are all Trump seems to offer – he doesn’t have much else. The words Mama Zen gave us certainly make me shiver. I agree about rising up and screaming but how many would join us in breathing love back into the world? Scary…

    Love the positive insistence Sanaa!

    a sentiment that is felt by many all over the world. for those of us who have a platform, let us holler, scream and yell, let us challenge the inequities happening and those being spewed by voices of hate and anger. for those of us who remember earlier ominous threats that engulfed the world, we survived through meeting the challenge, resisting, more importantly, promulgating ameliorative and corrective direction. ‘we shall overcome’ !
