Hold Your Ground

By November 17, 2015Poetry

Hold your ground…

When Current affairs throw spears at your heart and blind you in despair,

Hold your ground.

And breathe through the feelings that arise

When visions of drowned babies surface awakening a deep collective grief

Hold your ground.

And breathe through the pain you feel inside

When Genocide is overlooked, over-commentated and amplified

Hold your ground.

And breathe through all the injustice and lies

When the forests burn and the trenches fill with flesh

Hold Your Ground

And breathe through the insanity of reason.

When the bombs explode in echoes of lives taken too soon

Hold your ground.

And breathe through the rubble of suffering

Be steady in your stride, shaky hands do no good to lift the shackles

The Mainstream Media surge will wash you away in emotion if you let it

But it’s really not your tide

Be Here, NOW!

Look around but don’t look away.

You are no fool.

Let it all be fuel to command you into empowered action.

The world needs your greatness, your wisdom and maturity.

Remain in the stillness within…

Your empathic heart is far too precious to create a battlefield inside

Hold your ground.

And your head above the waters…

Hold strong.

We’re all in this together…

No one gets out alive.
