I need a poetry month

My heart hurts for                             the world
                                                               our country
                                                               our communities

I need to be        active, helpful

                                      to contribute constructively

                                          to healthy growth and compassionate change

The illusion of safety has vanished

                                                                  the bubble of falsely perceived equality for all has burst

                                                                                the wizard behind the curtain in MIA

What can        I        a priviledged middle-aged white woman in rural eastern Kentucky do 

              to promote healing and change?

I can love
I can speak
I can support
I can vote

I can write poetry.
