Could we just for a second, disrupt this bizarre normalcy
Of hatred, massacres, injustice, disillusionment disguised into a muffled calm?

Could those who have been talking take a moment to listen
to pause, to look, to touch and feel
the fabric of our shared humanity?

A second turns to minutes turns to movements.

Turn off the channels of fearfeeds and misunderstanding.
Turn to a stranger, a neighbor, yourself.
Ask why and be uncomfortable by the answer.

Stop repeating start creating.
Think, write, speak for yourself and the collective we.
Because it is time for a radical change of the everyday me.
