Rise


please stand together, rather than apart.
think with your mind, but also your heart.
please listen closely to those in pain.
use your voice, but also your brain.
please remember to spread the word.
again and again until your voice is heard.
please sign petitions, fight for reform.
help stop the rain before the storm.
please come in peace, but do not give up the fight.
many of us know just what is right.
please pray and pray for our nation to heal,
pay closer attention to how black people feel.
please remind yourself why you have a voice,
you can help or hurt, it is your choice.
