To Find a Way

Truth, crushed to earth, will rise again.

William Cullen Bryant

 

 

George Floyd Ahmaud Arbery we say their names

knowing how much more we have to do

than say their names to change this world

live the way we all deserve we watch fires

of Minneapolis hoping what’s burning

are years of injustice listen to the young mayor

once a community organizer  in his thirties

the second Jewish mayor of Minneapolis more

vigilant than before watchful of what we don’t understand

what we know for sure is May  the real true power

we have when we are all together and then

June and we will persist and vote and find a way

a way we don’t yet know.

 

 

 

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
