Resolve

1844937070_270477cef8_b

Any day, any time now

before it’s too late

change will come

 

Delays battle deadlines

even on a small scale

Frustration is inevitable

 

Garner that resolve,

hunker down for the long haul

Inspiration is borne of patience

 

Justice knows no bounds

kneeling before righteousness

Long for vindication too long coming

 

Many might reconsider

not willing to endure

old-fashioned hard work

 

Problems beg for resolution

Questions demand answers

Realize we can solve them together

 

Somehow change will come

today or tomorrow, by proclamation or covert operation

Unknown victories will one day be revealed

 

Vying for a place to call our own

we make a difference

Xenial relationships can find common ground

 

Yearn for this change to come

Zoom toward that future now unfolding

  1. Well done on the form! I like the flow, the fact you managed to write it into stanzas.
    I really liked this one
    “Garner that resolve,/hunker down for the long haul/Inspiration is borne of patience”
    And “Problems beg for resolutionQuestions demand answers/Realize we can solve them together”

    Thank you for the hope you gave me.

  2. Well done. I enjoyed this hopeful poem. This stanza struck me:
    Somehow change will come

    today or tomorrow, by proclamation or covert operation

    Unknown victories will one day be revealed

    Great job with the form, too, Michele. Thank you. xoA
