Now I understand how Mother Teresa and Gandhi felt.
I love. Therefore, I am human. I am a living breathing being.
I suffer. Therefore, I bleed like everything and everyone else.
I am surrounded by others who bleed the same. I live among others
who also know how to love.
So in the end, why is it so hard to get by?
If we as human beings are strong and LOVE is a strong word
why can’t people bypass the stereotypes
the negative thoughts
the need to compete and own everything
the need to eat greed and not help
when another being is in need?
Someone once told me
no matter how many protests I stand in
or poems and essays I write
or T-shirts I wear, nothing will ever change.
I alone won’t make a difference.
and this person was right,
I ALONE won’t make a difference.
But I am not alone.
There are more voices like mine.
Women have become important
Minorities have a voice, and are no longer the minority
‘Slave’ is not the norm anymore, not that it was before
So why have we lost the victory?
Why haven’t we continued using this to our advantage?
More of us… there are more of us out there.
We think. Therefore we should use it for the better good
We speak. Therefore, we should use it in a positive way
We live. Therefore, we should live together.
It has always been the way.
I dare you to.
