wield it

wield it!

my friends, brothers

and sisters

grasp it at its core

draw blood from your heart

and let it bleed, cut open

those lies and half-truths

let them see, what we have

to witness every day

the world  pounding

at our doorstep and we

sometimes don’t

know how to survive

the assault, except to

grasp it and wield it again

this mighty thing to

strengthen your voice

creating a hailstorm

of fury or a hurricane

of repressed anger

wield the pen

I urge you!
