November 2018 Recap


Am I

 

AM I

Am I to hate
Because of religion, color of skin?
What’s so great
About trampling another to win?

Am I to doubt
Because of fear, what may be?
Ignore by selling out,
Refuse to see?

Do I retreat, retaliate,
Blame fate, shrug and grin?
Will I flow or stagnant,
Right wrong, embrace sin?

There’ll always be stumbles
Searching for the truth.
Love eases struggles;
Promises eternal youth.


Clean

Love purifies.
