In Your Grasp

It is in your grasp

To take hold

To absorb

Offered light

Life’s rewrite.

It’s within your soul

To recall

To be bold

In the hollowed out space

Of your mind

To breathe deep

To grow whole.

Do not let anyone tell you

That kindness

Is a privilege

For other times.

Do not let anyone convince you

That truth

Is peripheral

To the necessity of

Getting some things done.

Do not let anyone berate you

That hope is


And you are somehow


For holding on

To empathy, veracity, civility, belief.

They are all
