Every life matters…

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.”
― Brené Brown

standing up

A few have fallen
that many
may rise…
every life
matters,
each sacrifice…

The sound
of singing,
the breath of grief,
the brave
assemble
to inspire belief…

No death,
no struggle,
was ever in vain…
heroic rhetoric
brings
fearless gain…

On streets
of glory
the collective arose,
the slain
were honored,
silence was deposed…
