I’ve Half A Mind To…

I hear about injustice.
I hear about a protest.
I feel the stirring in my gut.
I feel the need to speak up.

I am urged to get out.
I won’t stand idly by.
The fire stirs me to act.

A love that knows no fear.
A courageous willingness.
A force that gives selflessly—
channeling into creation.
