Not against those

Or talk different

Or dress different

But against those who

Tell you it matters

Don’t hope to be kind

Decide to be kind

War against cruelty

And meanness

Don’t believe those

Who would tell you

It is strong and tough

Or that it answers

Problems nothingelse does

In times scary and angry

Compassion can be revolutionary

Tell people that in caring

For others

We care for what

Is best and brightest in ourselves

Tell people that neighbors

Are real and that

You are glad to be theirs

Reach out to those

That know no hope

No safety, no home

And tell them life

Can be about living

And not all…
