Passion + Compassion – A poem –

By Yah’s girl on 4/28/2020

Some hide away behind closed doors.
Some hide away behind clean masks.
But I do not hide. I do not cringe.
I have compassion and passion.
I do not want my neighbor to suffer.
I do not want my neighbor to fear.

Some hide away behind many fears.
Some hide away from their past and tears.
But I won’t hide. I will face it head-on.
I have passion and compassion.
I want us all to be free entirely.
I want us all to be joyful and new.

Some hide away behind church steeples.
Some hide away, scared of all people.
But I will not hide. I will not fear.
I have passion, compassion, and courage.
I want us all to live anew.
I want us all to push on and push through.
