Let Them Sing!

I have to admit – I’m posting this because I felt guilty about my last post.  It is not to say that I don’t want us to think about those who struggle and suffer (we all truly need reminders).  However, I did not want you to march in on that new year with a depressed view of things.  To me, there is balance.

We must hold on to hope tightly – and give it breath through our actions.  We must also be realistic.  We must know where we are headed and what obstacles lay before us.  When others suffer, we also suffer – whether we know that or not, is really not of consequence.  It just isn’t.

We need to learn to live compassionately.  We need to learn that our actions far outlive us and they have lasting impact, whether they are words, actions, or avoidance of using our voices or our lives for good.  Let’s hope in this new year we learn to give more…


within your chest
the hope
of better days
for when the world
is cold and dark,
you shall need their comfort.
Let them soothe
the sad realities of our day
and give voice to freedom.
Let them sing –
let them sing!
A deep-throated,
soulful song
of hope, of truth, of virtue
and may their voice
give rise
to your voice as well
and someday –
may their fruitful noise
allow the beauty you hold within
a chance to fly.
