Different

Culture, creation, courage
Creation, courage, culture
Courage, culture, creation

Words that sound the same…
similar?
Different.

Events, laws, guidelines
which have historically
led to an offset of power;
led to propaganda;
led toward an opposite of democracy.

Clear
as day;
as mud.

We.
people who want freedom
from poverty;
from disease;
from violence;
were willing to trade
freedoms
for relief.

We.
had lost the ability
to wonder
to question
to discern
to create a culture of courage;
which
perpetuates kindness;
may disrupt peace;
but changes the world
for the better.

We.
are no longer looking
for freedom to be interchanged
because
relief was just a balm
that soaked in with the mud;
dissipated in the clarity of the daylight

The skin left raw and uncovered

demands
the world recognize
the need
for courage;
for a new creation;
for a culture
that loves without question
and questions everything.

The words sound different.
not similar
not the same.

because
when they come apart
so
do
we.
