When that fury builds overtop

The fences I’ve set to ensure I follow

Our societal, cultural, expected rules,

I find myself taking action.

When that pressure from synics

Begins to press in upon my temples,

To restrict the flow of blood and hope in my head,

I tell myself I must take action.

When the aggression of the bullies

Topples over the safeguards

My community relies on to stay whole,

I will always take action.

When the silence grows too loud

To hear the truth which has been masked by muted lies,

I have no choice but to find my voice,

To write and star on a new stage

In which I watch us all take action.
