Do not be still during these trying times
Move your limbs with forward motions
Move your limbs with peaceful motions
Lift your voice in the tender cry of dissent
Lift your hands for your brothers and sisters
Keep your hands open in generous repose
Find your peace in these troubling times
Love will win the day if you surrender to it
Love will win the day if you find it and cling to it
Your sadness is outweighed by your protective instinct
Your soul is holding the weight of the generations to come
Your heart is crashing against the cliffs of broken promises.
Be mindful that you never become what you have protested against
Don’t devolve into the ugliness that you’ve resisted for so long
Above all don’t cut and run – we need you here – we need you now
Be active in protest and in peace
Be active in thought and in deed
Be active and change the course we’re on
Most importantly – please do not be still.
Please do not be quiet.
Please find peace.
