Reach Beyond Normal: Vote

 

I want to run

from the anger

and lies

and hatred.

I want to scream

at non-voters

fed up with clowns

lazy fools

ignorant of history

incapable of believing.

I want to hide

from reality

lose my fear

in fiction

art

and music.

I want to awaken

the artists

writers

musicians

all Creatives,

too many are silent.

I want to protect

my family

friends

animals

Earth.

I want to sleep

without horror

thumping heart

cold sweats

ragged breaths.

I want to dream

of joy

families together

protected

without tears

no fear

free of rabbit-proof fences

and twisted false religion.

I want freedom

to reflect the Lady at the harbor

speaking

bring me your tired

your weary.

I want courage

never to waiver

strong

fearless

proud

kind

and caring.

I want protection

through communication

not weapons.

I want intelligence

in media

news of substance.

I want truth

facts

reports that matter

without money-making memes.

I want justice

answers

accountability.

I want to move forward

not back.

I want to believe

in dignity

that all men and women are created equal.

I want to cry

but instead

I vote.
