Disturbed

24 Aug

In a word:
I am disturbed

Shocked
doesn’t cut it
Disgusted
comes close
Disturbed…
Barely scratches the surface

Subversive.
Flames thrown into the furnace
Patriotism turns to hatred,
rises to the surface.

We are a disturbed people.

Appalled, horrified
Despair
Waves of despair
Intensify our rage
Our collective prayer

For peace, for equality
In a society
Diseased by inaction
Let this be our
Call to action
