This Moment

climate-strike-4770287_1920

In the end, we were just a moment
tender blossoms beneath scorched earth
a lonely palm tree facing fierce winds
a single ship in rising waters

We vowed to fight even if
in the end, we were just a moment
A moment to raise our voices
A moment to be as one

The devil laughed as demons are wont to do
He sent his troops as he declared
in the end, we were just a moment
He slurped our blood with rapacious gusto

And even as we buried our dead
we gathered our forces and taught our children
A legacy of triumph over ignorance
In the end, we were just a moment

The moment is now
Today’s moment that determines tomorrow
It is now
Fight
