All the Wonders

  • betharichardson

Hate, Emboldened

Hate, emboldened,

Steps out of a closet,

Packs a suitcase,

And drives to Virginia.

Hate, emboldened,

Does not feel the need

To cover up with hoods or robes.

Hate, emboldened,

Marches in the light of day,

And illuminates the night

With torches and spotlights.

Hate, emboldened

By "free speech"

And "take back what is ours."

Hate, encouraged by anger,

By fear, by prejudice.

Hate, empowered by the silence

Of political leaders,

Of church leaders,

Of ordinary people

Like me.

Rise up, voices of truth,

Voices of light,

Voices of courage.

Embolden Love.
