Will You

And so today I am here.

 

I do not lift an axe

or pull back a hammer

I do not clench a fist

or spit acidic words

 

No.

 

Today I am here.

 

In my moment

I put down my punishment

and reveal,

underneath the weight,

my bright and shining child

of the world.

 

Will you make your eyes big

as if you are seeing everything

for the first time

as if a child

again.

 

Will you lift yourself from the normalcy

of murder and corruption.

 

Will you be young again

and greedy for what is yours.

 

Do you know what is yours.

 

Do you know what is yours.

 

Will you remember

why it is you defend

and what is being defended

in your wars.

 

When you rage

what is it

that you are protecting.

 

And when you sit quietly

-perhaps, even now, reading this –

This moment

Now

 

What is in danger

 

Will you open your eyes

like a child

wide

and look on the world

again

for the first time

 

Will you know

truly

what is yours

and

will you see the distraction

of protection

 

Will you.
