Into the Fire


I know why people are apathetic…

because the pain of helplessness

and futility is simply too much to bear.


better to navigate this plain in an

altered state until we can make what

ever kind of exit is possible.


Caring would require doing the hard work…

facing challenges…being committed….

and getting your heart broken when you

have to witness inhumanity.


I will choose the forging (every time!)

and I will emerge a sword for justice!

  2. Dani,

    I love this poem! You are not merely a sword; you are a light saber!

    Larry you are the sweetest. Thank you so much. Sometimes I just need to remind myself why I fight the good fight. :)

    I’ve definitely felt this way, and probably we all have. I hope we all find moments of strength to resume the good fight, too!

    Yes…we do need to fight the good fight Anya. :) I wish more people would get involved in doing the right things. :)

Got something to say?
